The German tradition of an advent calendar is a delightful way
for kids, young and old, to count down until Christmas.
Each year, my husband's Aunt Jeanne, sends
her grandkids, great nieces and nephews an Advent Calendar
with little chocolates behind the doors.
Even though my two oldest are in their twenties...
they still enjoy the fun.
And this year, my sister visited Germany
and brought one home for us...
so I get my own!
It has chocolate treats inside too!
There is none for Christmas day.
There are plenty of other gifts and treats on that day,
plus nothing can beat the greatest gift of all!
