With so much to do in the area this holiday season, it can be hard to figure out what should be the priority. Never fear-Monterey Mommies is here! We’ve created a Christmas (or winter) Countdown for your family to use over the next month.

This uniquely Monterey area countdown is chock-full of fun ways to help your family celebrate the season. Simply cut out the squares in our Monterey County Christmas Countdown Printable and place them in a cute little holder like this or this. Feeling crafty? Get ideas for constructing your own calendar here. Not so crafty? Stick the whole thing on your fridge for ideas when you need them.
