Who doesn’t love an advent calendar?

The real reason I got this advent calendar was to cover some unsightly marks on the wall made by my chair that I can’t remove. I’ve actually worn a hole into the sheetrock!

That said, I love an advent calendar, although even as a child I was always disappointed by what was behind the windows. The drawings were never wondrous or fun enough.  I don’t know what I expected, or continue to expect, but something better. Drawings of fantastic creatures that don’t exist but are somehow Christmas-y?

I still love their sparkly promise, I can’t resist.  And never give up apparently. Check out this different kind of advent calendar.
