An Advent calendar helps kids count down the days to Christmas, and all those anticipated presents!
We had an old sparkly one, brought out each year of my childhood, and took turns opening the little window to find the picture hidden behind. In later years they came with chocolate behind the windows, but much as I love chocolate, I didn’t care for these calendars.
My sister was delighted when she found the above Advent calendar Christmas card and couldn’t wait to send it to me. I am still enjoying opening the little windows (sharing turns with my daughter) and seeing the tiny pictures.
And here, by special request (Ady), is a photo of my tiny artificial Christmas tree.
