I was on Pinterest yesterday looking at the create ways people count down to Christmas. As a kid I remember my parents having an Advent calendar (store bought) for us with little doors to open each day, and a Bible verse was behind each door, each verse telling a bit of the pre-Christmas story. I have seen some calendars for sale in stores with candy behind each door - although I'm not sure what that has to do with preparing.
This Sunday is the first day of Advent so I'm pondering how I want to prepare myself this season. What can I do each day?
Yes, Pinterest had some cute homemade ideas. But, I'm also wondering what (and "if") you have a tradition during Advent. I'd love to hear from you.
