My oldest is four this year and my youngest is turning two (in 2 weeks!). So this year I wanted to begin a tradition that we could use in the following years that tell the boys the TRUE meaning of Christmas but also let them enjoy the fun of it. (Especially since this movie is one of my favorites movies for Christmas).
So I took down my Christmas Countdown. I decided to go with the Jesus Storybook Bible readings and Louie the Elf. So far it is going well! Ben is loving when we read the stories and they both enjoy finding Louie each morning (even though we have had a few incidences where he has been touched, oops!).
It might seem odd to pick these two but to me it fits our lives in the moment. We are also doing the usual Christmas activities which I have listed below but I have them spaced out each week so there isn't something every day.
