For those who don't celebrate Christmas, Advent is the Christian season leading up to the Christmas holiday. Advent calendars are meant to coincide with the start of Advent and count down to Christmas. Nate's calendar has little doors for each day and each contains a small treat. He will open one door each night until December 25th.
Filling the calendar was fun. My Mom and I picked up some small things when I was in Cleveland a few weeks ago - Little People, trucks, socks. I filled the rest of the spots with snacks like goldfish and yogurt melts (and one or two pieces of leftover Halloween candy).
Last year was fun but as he gets old enough to understand the holidays, we're really looking forward to sharing our traditions with Nate!
