Countdown to Christmas

Advent candle
This is our candle which is numbered 1 to 25. We sit in the dark each evening and watch the flame and the tree lights or listen to some Christmas music. It helps us to reflect on what we have done that day and to discuss what is left to do.
When the children were young we used to buy them an advent calendar each, with chocolates behind the doors. They would tell us if they had made or decorated something that day at school. They might tell us how the Christmas play was going or even tell us some Christmas jokes! Sometimes, the chocolate would not last until Christmas!!
