Advent calendars can be a lot of fun and a great way to start a tradition with your family and kids counting down the day until Christmas.
For Christians, Christmas means counting down the days until you celebrate the day that Jesus came into the world so that people could have everlasting life in Heaven. If you are a Christian, consider buying a Christian advent calendar that focuses on Jesus’ birth rather than Santa Claus or some other Christmas character.
There are a few different types of Christian advent calendars that you can choose from and there are even some that are geared specifically for kids. Check out all of the advent calendars for Christians below.
This is a large advent calendar from the Vermont Christmas company that features a stained glass appearance of the Holy Family. On the outside border are 24 windows that you pop open to reveal a small picture as well as a Bible verse leading up to the days when Jesus was born.
The whole calendar measures 17 inches in diameter and can be hung on the wall. It is made out of a sturdy cardboard material and will definitely be a great accent to your Christmas decorating as well.
This is probably my favorite Christian advent calendar because it’s one that can be used over and over again and the details are just wonderful. There are 24 drawers on the outer edges of the box and each one has a magnetic figure that makes up the nativity scene you put together in the middle of the box.
It is made of wood and it really will last year after year and become a great tradition in your family. You can even include a small slip of paper with a bible verse in the drawer along with the figure.
The advent calendar measures 14.25 inches by 17.25 inches wide. It can be displayed on a wall or on a shelf or table.
The “Story of Christmas” advent calendar book is great for young kids as well as older kids. This book features 24 miniature board books inside that are numbered 1-24 and each one is meant to be used on each day leading up to Christmas.
When you read them in the correct sequence the real story of Christmas is read out from the angel Gabriel visiting Mary to Jesus’ birth. The books can be hung on the tree after being read by the attached gold loop to decorate your Christmas tree as well.
