The Story Behind the ABC Christmas Countdown:
Three winters ago, I decided that I wanted to start a countdown to Christmas with my kids. I looked around at advent calendars and found that they were either filled with cheap candy or expensive. We already spend enough around the holidays and I couldn’t rationalize spending the money. But I still wanted to countdown to the holidays.
I considered the popular Christmas book countdown (and almost went with it) until I realized it wasn’t a fit either. We love reading and my kids love to look at the holiday books all season long. If I wrapped them, they wouldn’t be able to enjoy them whenever they want. Plus, wrapping (or even organizing) 25 books for a countdown sounded like a lot of work.
I almost gave up on my idea of a fun countdown until I stumbled upon an idea on Instagram – using the alphabet to countdown. It didn’t take me long to decide that this was the perfect fit. My boys loved it and it’s become a tradition over the years. This is our fourth year doing the ABC countdown and I thought I’d package it up for others to use as well. I’ve spent years picking out the perfect themes and activities and now I want to make it easy for you with all of the activities in one place!
