Last year we started a family Christmas tradition – Advent Calendar & 1 tree ornament for each kid.
This year Daddy C want to add a Christmas village, I agreed but we won’t purchase a whole village in one go! He finally agreed, and we decided to buy a Nativity scene & mini Christmas Tree’s (we have 2! Daddy bought the green one because our “village” is too brown).
LittleMan V was looking forward to his advent calendar gifts, I really didn’t like the idea that he only think about getting gifts so I had to look for a different activity. We want to teach him that this season is not just about receiving gifts, I searched the web and found something we can all do together – the Story of First Christmas. You too can get the story for Advent here, it’s still the 3rd day you can still make up for the two days you’ve missed.
Every night before sleeping we read a snippet of the Christmas story. Our LittleMiss advent activity is very simple, with the help of Kuya V she adds a cotton ball to complete Santa’s beard.
What is your family Christmas tradition?

Family Christmas tradition, we don’t have the Nativity yet and the advent calendar. I plan to purchase them after Christmas and introduce them next year. That’s the only way i can buy them at a lesser price.
Happy holidays to you and your family!
I’m also on a hunt for Christmas ornaments after the holiday frenzy, the advent calendar I just print at home. Happy Holidays to your family!
