One of the oldest parts of Christmas to me is my Advent Tree. There are twenty-four ornaments that get pinned onto this, one every night saving the star on top for Christmas Eve.
It's seems very simple, but it's different every year. First I would point to where I wanted the puffy, sequinned piece pinned. And eventually I was old enough to pin them on myself. I think my only regret is that I don't have a picture of the past forty-five variations.
So this year, I'm going to take a picture every day to show the countdown to Christmas.
