"Experiences" rather than "things" for countdown to Christmas. Love love love this!
I think that this year, Owen's advent to Christmas -- secular, of course, but I want it to be meaningful, not just calendars with candy in them -- will mostly be about getting the house ready for Christmas, wrapping presents, talking about lights and about generosity, and making presents for friends. In future years, I want it to include choosing something, every day of advent, to give away to someone who needs it more. There will still be getting, though, treats and adventures and fun.
