One of the awesome Christmas traditions that we inherited from Ben's family is the Christmas countdown candle. Ben's dad makes these every year and sends us one before Christmas. My kids are always so excited to get their Christmas Candle from Grandpa.
It always sits in the middle of the kitchen table. This year Mr. J was so excited to see they were silver!
Ben's dad buys the candles and then melts crayons and writes on the candle with the melted crayon. Each night at dinner we burn the candle down to the next day's number. As the candle gets shorter and shorter Christmas gets closer and closer. Such a great tradition. Thank you Dad for doing this for us every year!!!! We love and miss you!
