Have you ever had an Advent calendar?

Ever since I was a little girl I have enjoyed advent calendars.  My grandmother (my mom’s mom) used to give all of her younger grandchildren an Advent calendar every year.  The anticipation of what little picture would be behind each little door was so exciting to me.

When my grandmother no longer remembered such things, one of my aunts took over and continued the tradition.  This tradition of advent calendars was something that I happily began with my children as soon as they were old enough to open the little doors. My oldest son is no longer interested, but my daughter and youngest son are!  If they weren’t I think I would have to get one for myself!  The photos in this post are of the three advent calendars that we use year after year.  One day I would love to create my own.  Maybe with my photos, or maybe with my crocheted creations.  I’ll have to keep that in mind this year, my first Christmas season with my DSLR!

Oh, the anticipation!  What will be behind tomorrow’s doors!  It’s a lot like real life, isn’t it?
