Another one of my cherished childhood memories happens to fall around Christmas (surprised?). The first day of December was always an exciting one because it meant that I could eat a little piece of cardboard tasting advent chocolate before I even brushed my teeth. While our tradition generally consisted of going to the dollar store where my brother and I would argue over which advent package we wanted, there are a number of great ideas out there that I had never really considered until now. From stringing small gifts on a tree, packaging little treats and hanging them along a clothesline, or even associating a different Christmas tree ornament for each day of december, and as the days go by, hanging each ornament on the tree. While I prefer advent calendars of the chocolate variety (that you can easily eat for breakfast), these are a few great ideas to help you start a tradition of your own.
