It's the most wonderful time of the year-- full of festive holiday cheer! Here are some of our favorite Advent calendars for kids and adults to help kick off the Christmas countdown.
Celebrating Advent involves spending time in spiritual preparation for the coming birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas. In Western Christianity, the season of Advent begins on the fourth Sunday prior to Christmas Day, or the Sunday which falls closest to November 30, and lasts through Christmas Eve, or December 24.
This year, Advent begins Sunday, November 29th, and ends Thursday, December 24th.
