Advent Calendar to teach the True Story of Christmas - start today!

It's December 1st... time to start your Advent Calendar to teach kids the True Story of Christmas!

It won't take too long to gather the supplies if you already have an Advent Calendar, so go check it out and get started a few days late if you have to!
