We have our's do you? A fun tradition to get us all ready for Christmas is an Advent Calendar. As early as 1851, advent calendars were used to make this countdown even more exciting. Originally, they were based on 24 days with Christmas Eve as the last night to either put up a picture or take a candy. Today, the traditional German calendars still show 24 days, but in the United States, it's not uncommon to also find ones with 25 days -- the last opening to occur on Christmas Day. Here are a few of my favorites!
