Online Advent Calendar

For those of you with children, you might want to check out this online and interactive Advent calendar that I located through a link on the Herald of Scotland website. It has the 24 days of December prior to Christmas day on the calendar, with information on typical Christmas symbols such as reindeer, holly, evergreen trees, gifts, etc., but also Christmas songs playing in the background (Joy to the World; Jingle Bells) and relevant biblical passages related to the Christmas season read aloud. Follow the instructions when you arrive at the link and I hope this adds some fun to the Christmas preparation in your home. The only thing missing are the little chocolates to pull out every day.
