24, to be exact. Wrapped and piled under the tree, to be opened with delight each day of Advent. Complete with snuggle time and kisses (real and Hershey's). I don't know who is more excited: me or my kids!
If I can keep up, I will post the daily reveal here on my blog. There is quite a variety. Some are silly, some are classics. Some share the biblical Christmas Story. Others are heartwarming, or even tear-jerking (at least for me, if not my 4 1/2 and 3 year olds.)
What are you passionate about? What are your kids interests? Perhaps you can find a way to weave those things into a new family tradition for you. During Advent, or anytime of year!
