The ultimate advent activity list

Advent for me is part of the way of getting away from the whole consumerism of Christmas Day.  As a family, we have our own advent calendar that I made and we do an activity each day throughout Advent, which helps us focus on the true meaning of Christmas for us.  Plus I have to admit that since my Mum was found dead on Christmas Day three years ago, this helps me keep up a brave face to the boys and not become too down.
