I know you’ve been there, like me—on the evening of November 30, you realize the official month of Christmas begins tomorrow, so you’d better whip together your family’s advent calendar.
Every year, I have grand ambitions to thoughtfully, methodically prepare our holiday season with an Advent calendar or Jesse Tree. And every year, I scrap it together at the last minute. Or scrap the idea for next year. Not the biggest deal in the world, of course, but I do wish I had more time to enjoy the preparation of these sweet, simple family traditions.
Well guess what? I’ll enjoy them more if I start preparing now. I know, who wants to think about Christmas activities the week of Thanksgiving? But there’s only two weeks until December, so by doing a little bit of prep this week, you’ll be sitting prettier by the first of the month.
