Nov 30, 2017|

Holiday advent calendar

The holiday season often brings out the best in people. From food drives to collecting toys and clothes for the needy, there’s no shortage of ways you can help bring joy to others.

For kids, the excitement of Santa, making Christmas lists, and seeing toy commercials everywhere can make it a little harder to get into the true spirit of the season.

A Christmas countdown calendar, or advent calendar, is one way you can teach kids the true meaning of Christmas while starting a fun holiday tradition.

What’s an advent calendar?

An advent calendar is a December calendar used as a Christmas countdown for the days leading up to Christmas. There are hundreds of countdown to Christmas calendars with different themes, but the idea behind them is the same.

Each day has a little door or slot that contains a treat or task for you to complete as you get closer to Christmas day.

Get in the spirit of giving with a service-based Christmas countdown calendar

One way to help kids get into the giving spirit of Christmas is to create a December calendar of service. This type of advent calendar contains different acts of service you can do as a family each day.

The great thing about this calendar is that instead of chocolate or goodies, it focuses on reaching out to others and looking for opportunities to make a difference in the lives of your neighbors and members of the community — and that’s what Christmas is all about.
