Christmas Countdown Chains

I decided to count down the days before Christmas a little more creatively than normal this year.  Instead of using a traditional advent calendar, I made a Christmas countdown chain for each of the kids.  Each little wrapped box in the chain contains a fun bauble, trinket or sweet and the kids will open one present each day until Christmas Eve.  Even though they are getting older, both Emma and Finn squealed with delight when they found the cheery chains hanging in their doorways!  I think this is shaping up to be the perfect way to celebrate the spirit of the season each day!

Oh my gosh, that is too awesome! You are inspiring me for next year already. I really wanted to do something like this and just didn't get my act together. It's incredible. What a great memory.

I love this idea. Am wishing I had more time to pull it off this year, especially now that the cat is officially out of the bag about Santa. I need to find some ways to re-inject the magic of Christmas.
