I love advent calendars almost as much as I love opening the mail. I look forward to each day when I get to reach inside and pull out a little surprise. Last year, I got ambitious and decided to make my own. I found a kit online that came with 25 mini boxes that were precut. All I had to do was fold them up and stick a cute little sticker on the inside of each one:

And I was all done! I sent them to family members as part of their Christmas gifts. I can't wait to share this tradition with my kids!
Do you open advent calendars in December? What other fun holiday traditions do you have?
