Growing up my family’s Christmas countdown starts on the first Simbang Gabi. Santa Claus was not a biggie for us we had our very own gift giver which was our parents, godParents, Aunts and Uncles. The highlight for us would be the Noche Buena , opening of gifts when the clock strikes 12 midnight and finally getting our Christmas money from our GrandParents.
Having a family of my own, I want to have a tradition for Christmas specially for the kids. Something that they will remember when they have kids of their own.
My eldest V believes in Santa Claus, we didn’t really introduce him I guess he got it from his friends in school. When we put the Christmas tree up he has been bugging us when will Santa Claus visit.
This year I showed Daddy C several ideas for Christmas and we both love the idea of having an Advent Calendar. Of course C let me decide what kind of calendar we’ll use as well as crafting them. I managed to create a stocking from colored papers and made us of old gift wrappers to design them.
