What is a Christmas Countdown Calendar?
This type of holiday calendar counts down every day during the Advent season. The Advent season is the 4-week period before the birth of Christ. It’s the first day of the new Church calendar and is often celebrated with special activities every year. There are lots of different types of Christmas countdown or Advent calendars. Some have religious connections. Others are more about celebrating the fun times of the winter holidays.
How does a Christmas calendar work?
Many calendars come in the shape of a flat rectangular box or a wooden box with drawers. Each day, you will lift a flap up or open up a drawer to see what the day’s activity is. When you use one of these calendars, you will take one action every day leading up to Christmas for a total of 24 days. What you do each day really depends on your family preferences and the type of countdown calendar you get.
On day one, you will do the activity printed on the first square. Depending on the type you use, you may need to lift a flap or open a box to see what you’ll be doing.
Sometimes these activities will be things you can do as a family like baking cookies. Other times, there will be a special ornament to hang on your tree or a piece of chocolate for the person that opens the square.
If you choose a Christmas countdown calendar that is religious, it is often called an Advent calendar. Each day, you will read a scripture from the Bible and discuss it as a family.
