Turn work into a game, working together as a family, building work ethic and a group sense of accomplishment. Focusing a week on individual notoriety and importance, with a seven day birthday advent calendar, injects an energy of excitement the whole family shares.

An atmosphere of collaboration and fun is easily crafted with step by step instructions to accomplish each concept. Stories from personal experiences are shared to demonstrate how traditions evolve and become the foundation of lasting family strength.
