Christmas Advent Event!

Hi! I am totally excited about the next 25 days! Christmas is more than just a day- it is a season to keep throughout the whole year! A line from my favorite movie

"Where you find LOVE it feels like Christmas!"

I have spent the last couple of years trying out different advents in search of the one for my family. I came to the conclusion that we all are looking for different things in our Christmas celebrations and I am going to share the one I have created with you. 

I don't know if it will be completely the same next year- I am sure many will - but I am hoping that as time goes by I can adapt this to the needs of my family as they come. 

I hope you enjoy it too!!


To begin- you need your calender!

What you will need:

Cardstock
Tape/glue
Garland/String/ Something to hang in up with

Directions:

Print out the calender on the cardstock. Cut out the envelopes on the solid lines and fold on the dotted so that the text is on the INSIDE of the envelope. Tape or glue shut (if you want this reusable you may want to go with the tape)


Next adhere the numbers to the envelopes- you can count up or countdown- your choice!! This year I decided to count up so I could keep track!



Now hang it up!! You are ready to go!!

You could hide them in your tree:


Or on a pretty garland:



I would LOVE to see what you decide to do with it!!! 

**** UPDATE*** Day 16 has the numbers reversed- the scripture should be Isaiah 9:6****

Day One 
(Twenty-Five)

John 3: 16 


Why was Jesus Christ sent to earth?

  8. If you are working on a desktop, instead of a mobile device, you don't have the weird app thing. :)

  10. I am so amazed at your creativity and willingness to share such a wonderful tradition. I would love to start this with my own family. However, when I go to download the advent calendar printable it wants to run as an executable file, which causes my firewall to go crazy and not allow. Is there another way you can re-post this material or email it to me directly? Thanks again! -Kaylene
