There is nothing more exciting than the magic of Christmas time. As soon as the first day of winter knocks on our doors, we are already looking forward to Christmas Day. So to help you countdown the days until Christmas, we’ve prepared a special Christmas advent calendar. Then, every day you do one fun Christmas activity to enjoy every December day and fulfill with the holiday mood and spirit.

Let yourself feel like a child again and draw into memories of when you spent time writing a colorful letter to Santa. Who knows, maybe Santa put your dreams under the Christmas tree this Christmas.
Day 3. Drink hot chocolate outside
