I like the whole concept of the Advent calendar. Advent is the celebration in anticipation for the arrival and birth of Christ, and an advent calendar is an interactive and meaningful way to countdown to Christmas--each day revealing a surprise and bringing a small dose of holiday cheer.
I thought it would be fun to do a blogging version of an Advent calendar by having my own daily Christmas Countdown. 25 days featuring festive holiday goodies!
So what better way to start things off than with an actual Advent Calendar! Tuck away 25 little surprises behind the hinged doors of this rustic tree-shaped version from Pottery Barn.
