What is an Advent Calendar?
Advent calendars are a tradition that dates back to the 1800s. The original purpose of the advent calendar was to count down the days until Christmas. The advent calendar was a sheet of paper with a square for each day of December leading up to Christmas Eve.
Advent calendars are a tradition in many countries that takes place in the four weeks before Christmas Day. It’s a countdown to the big day.
A search on Pinterest will give you tons of ideas on how to make a Christmas Advent calendar. The simplest that I see is using brown paper bags, like these from Stephanie Hanna. Aren’t they the cutest?!
You can do something similar using the brown paper bags and taping or clipping your free Christmas Advent calendar tags to them.

3. Write down fun family activities to do each day until Christmas. For example, read a Christmas boo, watch a Christmas movies, drive around town looking at Christmas lights and decorations, make Christmas cards for family and friends, make ornaments, etc.
5. Put on of these Christmas-themed erasers in your advent calendar drawer or bags!
I just purchased these super cute gnome ornaments to put in my Advent calendar for the kids to decorate the tree each day. There are only 10 gnomes. You can always mix them up with other gnomes above.
I hope you get some good ideas on what to include in your Christmas Advent Calendar.
