    Thanks. I just had this moment of am I counting up to 24 or down to 1. I think the Lego advent calendars have special mini-figure for the day before Christmas and didn't want to mess it up.

    we always do 1 to 24-- it never occurred to me to do any other way! growing up we had a felt tree that we put ornaments on each day-- day 24 was santa! (so the BEST/biggest thing) that's usually how the playmobil ones work too-- 24 has a bigger figure/item

    have fun with your lego calendar!

    I almost did it backwards this year, last year someone posted they did and I thought that's kind of cool that they get to enjoy the best thing all month. DD has a playmobil Santa's Post Office and the last day is a pretty tree and I was thinking it would be cool to get the tree first so it can be up all month.

    We did it backwards this morning because every other calendar we've had counts down to Christmas. The kids were great about it though and just stuck it back in once it was obvious.
