    1. The “Laughing all the way” tag would work with a fun family movie. And the “Twas the night before Christmas” tag could be used for any Christmas Eve tradition. Like hanging stockings, putting cookies out for Santa, putting reindeer food out for Rudolph, or reading the nativity story. Hope that helps!

  1. I love this Christmas Eve box idea! I just made up cookie baking boxes for my grans but this was a great idea for next year.
    I have an idea but need some help. I bought these big Wooden Advent calendar with drawers for each day. My plan is to fill it throughout the year. Any ideas with what to fill it with? I bought 4 for each of my children and their families (mostly small children). I was thinking of things like ride around looking at Christmas lights adding in a gas card. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated or even a printable !
