There are a lot of activities you can do before December 25. First, of course, decorating a Christmas tree. You can decorate it with a non-tree Christmas tree too. Next, you can donate your old clothes or stuff you don't use anymore but still valuable for those who need them. If you don't have anything to donate, you can also sign up for volunteering projects like in the nursing home or homeless shelter. Doesn't it the true meaning of Christmas?
Some people make a calendar for the Christmas countdown. As their creation go, a lot of them make pockets to count the day. As a result, we can fill in random fillers. The simplest gift you can put is a Christmas message, joke, or Bible verse. You can also put a photo frame to put your family picture later on Christmas eve. If you want to do it virtually, you can send a voice note about a Christmas song or audio message. For coffee lovers, you can put some coffee beans or a bag of the grounded ones in the pocket.
Since there are a lot of activities that boost your creativity, then most of the supplies to make some homemade Christmas countdown activities are papers, glue, and other sparkly decorations. But, you can also make the craft from different supplies, such as colorful paper cups, tissue papers, twine, a sewing kit, and number stickers. Some people make a balloon ornament at home in which they use balloons, tape, and wire to hang the balloon. If you do this with little children, you will need cotton balls to make sheep decorations. You are free to get help with technology too!
Advent is a celebration to countdown the birth of Jesus, which is on December 25. There are a lot of traditions that mark down the celebration of Advent. The first one is from the altar decoration.
