The advent calendar is my favorite Furber family Christmas tradition. But, we do a little differently than your usual 12 day countdown. The entire month of December, my mom leaves small presents every third day for each of us three kids. I'll start, then my brother, then my sister, and it repeats until the 24th. She leaves us little treats like nail polish, gift cards, or charitable donations, and it's the best thing to wake up to every day.

However, since all of us kids have moved out, it's become a little more difficult to coordinate the advent calendar. To course correct, my mom has started buying pre-made advent calendars from brands we love, and it's been the ultimate treat. In 2021, I got an Apotheke one, and it had mini scented candles and body products for 25 days. I'm still working my way through all that goodness.
