My Advent Calendar features a symbol on the first and last days and a letter on each of the other days. These letters and symbols are very easy to spot so there's no searching this year. The letters are all mixed up and on the 24th December they will need to be sorted to solve the message from me.
I love taking a peek at how others decorate for Christmas. Here are 3 pics of the decorations at DD's house this year. There's a woodland theme going on on the main tree.
I'm linking my Advent Calendar with Julie's Scrapbook.
