Inside: Looking for the best advent calendars to give as gifts for December? These are perfect to countdown the days of December until Christmas.
We love counting down to Christmas.
What’s not to love?
Gift giving and gift receiving.
Christmas lights and Christmas decorations and Santa visits.
Christmas cookies and reindeers.
Christmas is the most magical time of the year.
So it makes sense that everyone from kids to adults want to countdown to Christmas.
We can countdown to Christmas and spread kindness with our Christmas Kindness Advent Calendar, our Christmas Kindness Countdown Paper Chain, and our Countdown to Winter Break with Kindness Paper Chain.
We also countdown to Christmas with this cute Snowman Countdown Craft.
And the best way to countdown is with advent calendars. Over the years, we’ve used different kinds of advent calendars as we countdown to Christmas.
