In an earlier post, I mentioned setting up an Advent Calendar of family activities. Just had a final consultation with DH, DD7 and DS9 and here it is! It’s quite rough – there are still a few parties/lunches/dinners to be added – but it feels great to have a list 😉
- ‘Breakfast/make Christmas decorations’ event at kids school
- Post Christmas cards (that were written in November…) and drink ‘Snowman Soup’ (hot choc with marshmallows, cream and cinnamon)
- Go and see Santa in a shop in town
- Bake biscuits and eat risengrød (Danish rice pudding) for dinner
- Make ‘natural’ decorations – spraypaint pinecones, chestnuts etc
- ‘Tree Decorating’ Party at DH’s office
- Decorate outside tree with our ‘natural’ decorations and tiny apples
- Christmas Party at Scouts
- Make bird feeders and hang in garden
- My Christmas lunch with the girls! 🙂
- DH at office party tonight, we’ll have takeaway food
- Double check gift list and wrap any last-minute presents
- Bake large batch of sausage rolls to freeze – and eat 😉
- Bake more biscuits and watch Christmas film
- Visit Tivoli gardens
- Ice the Christmas cake (marcipan, thick white icing, decorations)
- Read Christmas stories and take in gifts – last day of school tomorrow!
- DH and I are going to see Eddie Izzard in nearby Sweden
- DH baking large batch of æbleskiver (traditional Xmas Danish donuts)
- Go out and buy Christmas tree for livingroom
- Make table decorations with clay, holly, candles etc
- Decorate Christmas tree with lights, Danish flags, baubles
- Serve æbleskiver and hot gløgg (mulled wine)
- Champagne breakfast, it’s Christmas in Denmark! 🙂

I love your advent list! I'm going to be starting to work on mine as well. I think we have our school calendars online now so I can plan around those activities.
Wow!, Thanks for sharing Diane.
LOL, mine is much less ambitious.
So far tentative Christmas singalong at parent's house and doing a Christmas lights sight-seeing around town.
Thanks for giving me examples and ideas!
P.S. Marzipan is my favorite, especially the Mozart Kugen with the hazelnut creme or the Baumstamm bars yum!
Sounds like a fun and busy month! 🙂
