This year my husband and I have decided to start a new tradition with our children by doing a Christmas Advent Calendar. Our family loves Christmas and the thought of getting to celebrate the whole month instead of just a couple of days has us so excited. While we do love Elf on the Shelf, an advent calendar is a classic tradition that we want to have our kids experience. Upon deciding for us to do this new tradition I began searching for the perfect one for our family.
