I've got a chocolate one all ready to go! I've also got an advent calendar as well.

And on my website there will be an online one - and this year it's got a new funky look! http://www.whychristmas.com/adventcalendar/

And you can also follow it on twitter at http://www.twitter.com/happyadvent and I'll be doing it on Facebook as well! http://facebook.com/whychristmas

I made my own advent calendar two years ago. Square pockets made of green felt lined-up to look like a Christmas tree witha star on top. For each day of the countdown, I'll put a different chocolate or candy, one for me and one for my husband. Countdown starts Saturday, can't wait!

We have 4 books with advent readings for the whole family. Three of them are stories written by Arnold Ytreeide, Jotham's Journey, Bartholomew's Passage, Tabitha's Travels. You read more of the story everyday from the beginning of advent (Dec 2 this year) through Christmas day.

My website also has an advent calendar - http://www.customsofchristmas.com/adventcal-cbear.html. It's a radio program that first aired in 1937. The story begins tonight (November 29) and goes through Christmas Eve. It's a great little story. You'll enjoy it.

I saw an idea online, I think it was on Pinterest probably. Use a muffin pan that has 24 holes and cover each hole with paper or fabric, you could even put a treat in each hole! I had the muffin pan, and was numbering the circles I cut out, on the pan, and I skipped number 11.....
Sigh
So, I scrapped the idea.
Someday I would like to do the advent with the candles...
