My first daughter, Lux, is on her third Christmas and for three years I’ve meant to do something for the advent season. I finally got my act together to organize a series of easy and fun crafts, activities, treats, and books for the first 24 days of Christmas and for the whole family. I’ve created a Pinterest board with over 35 ideas for Advent and a list of OVER 50 Christmas and holiday books below. Creating this book list was more fun than I thought- there’s soooo many good ones I want to buy. Let me know your favourites or if I left any out! I’d love to add to this list.

I also have a Shop the Post slider at the bottom with some gorgeous advent calendars including the one above!
