I was too. One year, as I watched my kids eat cheap candy from their grocery store advent calendar, I realized that the days leading up to Christmas held little meaning for my family. We were simply running on a hamster wheel of "more". I wanted December to mean something different for us. So I set out to create an advent calendar experience that would bring us more of what matters most.
1) Time together. Christmas brings so much fun, but it's often pulling our family in different directions. I wanted to be together as a family every day. Even if it was just for a few minutes.
2) Something easy. I knew that we'd never succeed if each family activity was too involved or set in stone. My goal was to create activities that were short and easy. I knew I usually had 30 minutes or less before the craziness of the season would pull us in different directions.
3) To build traditions. The only way to do that is to do memorable things together consistently.
So I created a family advent calendar based on spending time together as a family each day.
