14 Super Fun Advent Calendars

Super Fun Advent Calendars | The Mindful Shopper

Advent is a season observed in many Western Christian churches as a time of preparation and celebration for the birth of Jesus at Christmas. The term “Advent” is a version of the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming”.

There are many ways to use an Advent Calendar to celebrate the season. Some families use the Advent Calendar to reveal a special daily ornament for the tree. Others use it to share fun treats for each day of Advent. My favorite type of Advent Calendar is one that shares a special question for each family member to reflect upon or gives the family a special action or daily good deed to do in the days preceding Christmas.

I remember the Advent Calendar my family had when I was a kid. I always treasured this tradition. I have searched for special Advent Calendars that your family can use to create your own Advent traditions.
