Count down tradition

My Grandmother made this Christmas countdown tree for me when I was little. (My cousins have one, too.) 

Each day we snap a new decoration on the tree. Big bird was a favorite of mine, so she made him for my tree. 

She also made my Christmas stocking with similar beautiful beading.

  1. How awesome! And what a wonderful memory to have every time you look at it. I don't know if I'd want to make one for all 9 grandkids....but I'd love to do something for them to take with them into their adult lives and share with their kids. Mrs. Claus always brings the kids/grandkids ornaments. And typically it is something special that happened during the year. Thanks for sharing your countdown calendar with us.
