My Tradition

My favorite family tradition is the Advent Calendar. For our family we start on December 1st  and ends on December 24th which is Christmas Eve. The Advent Calendar has 24 boxes around a manger. There is Jesus, Mary, Joseph, The Three Wise Men, sheep, stars, shepherd and a donkey. Every day we take turns opening a box and putting the character on the manger. The last piece is Jesus and we put him on Christmas Eve. After we put on the piece we open a special bag where we find candy and other treats. I love this tradition because it is a surprise when I wake up every day.

  1. Dear Matthew,
    I enjoyed reading about your Christmas tradition. What a great way to count down and anticipate Christmas day!
    Do you have any other special family traditions for other holidays?

    Love,
    Sydney’s Mom
