Day 8 – Advent Calendar

Advent Day #8 – Put a surprise voucher in the Advent Calendar that says, “Cash this surprise in after dark and after you have your pajamas on.”  When its time to cash in the voucher, load up the family in the car (yes, in their pajamas!), grab some hot cocoa and candy canes, and drive around looking at lights.  {This is something Robynn did with her dad (minus the pajamas) as an adult, except with cappuccino, so feel to stop by the convenience store for your favorite warm drink!}

{You may choose to simplify the process big-time and do something as easy as  pick one person a day from now ’til Christmas and pray for them.  It doesn’t need to be time-consuming, stressful, or cost you anything.  Do what works for you and enjoy the season with the ones you love!!}

Alternate Activity:  Strike up a pleasant conversation with a stranger (such as a clerk, mailman, or crossing guard) and when you finish the conversation, tell them to have a wonderful day/Christmas/etc with a big smile.
