candles are popular holiday traditions. The Advent recognizes the wait until Christmas, so an Advent calendar is also a great thing for families to get as the holiday season kicks: it's a fun way to entertain children while they wait for Christmas. With each day another window is opened. Some calendars may reveal a picture or a treat for each day.
