This year I thought it would be fun to make a Christmas carol advent calendar to enjoy singing with the kids throughout the month of December. I did create one blank page in the free printable advent calendar template so that you can print that out and substitute your favorite carols, books, or activities. I may use them for our picture book countdown this year instead of wrapping up the books – dual purpose cards! You can also print and laminate these pictures to make fun winter-themed bookmarks.

The backdrop for these cards is a photo my brother took near their house in Sweden. You can see the full picture (and discover more wonderful Christmas traditions) in my Christmas in Sweden post.

Set your printer to print double sided, and you will get the image on the front and the name of a carol on the back. I stuck with carols from this Christmas Carol Songbook so that, if you want to follow along, you can find all of the music in one place. This book has words, guitar chords, and melody, but no piano accompaniment. If you want a piano accompaniment, I like The Reader’s Digest Merry Christmas Songbook, which also includes the stories behind the songs, or the newer Merry Christmas Songbook. I used a mix of secular and religious carols that most people would be familiar with. If you prefer to listen your way through the month, there are some wonderful Christmas-song-themed Youtube videos.

I didn’t write numbers on the songs, but I highly recommend singing Silent Night on Christmas Eve. That is the day it was composed, and it is traditional in Austria (where it was written and first performed, and where I went to high school) to sing this song on Christmas Eve.

  1. Our favorite carol is Silent Night. We will be singing our way to Christmas with you this year. I love this idea, great way to discover new songs.

  2. Such a lovely idea. We love singing Christmas carols. This year my eldest daughter has learned how to play the piano and I am looking forward to listening to her play songs all holiday long.

    Beautiful! And what a brilliant idea! I think I will try to adapt this to advent songs, as we anticipate Jesus’ birth.

    This is just perfect for us this year. We cannot attend our usual carol service so this will be a great way to sing some of our favourites at home!
