It can be hard to do all the things at Christmas time, and I feel like it's important to do what you feel is best for your family. I did a mix of tradition things, as well as faith-based things.. And some days, I combined two into one day... If you're interested in seeing how I did ours, here is the google doc link.. 

I'd love to see your Advent Calendar! Feel free to tag me so I can see it!
