Christmas Countdown

I received this Christmas countdown from a  friend last week and thought that I in turn would share it with you. The idea is to have one even per day that you take part in as a family, leading up to Christmas day. You can edit the list to your own liking, it's the thought of togetherness and the building of a child's anticipation. Here is the list! Enjoy.
