Calendars of Love and Surprises
One of my most favorite things about Christmas are Advent Calendars. Which is kind of odd considering that I didn't even know they existed until my freshman year of college. My non-religious college roommate from France received one from her parents. It was like a care package to last a month and I was fascinated by the idea of getting a new surprise every day. I loved the intricacy of hers and I love the variety that you can find today. Beauty calendars, beer calendars and you can't ignore the chocolate ones, the list really does go on and on. I even bought a wooden one of a manger scene a few years ago that I can fill with whatever I want, though usually I'm too lazy. But it's still my favorite Christmas decoration, I just love the promise of it. This year I purchased McCrea's caramel calendar that my wife and I are enjoying everyday. It's just a wonderful way to bring a little bit of joy into the Christmas season. So do you love Advent Calendars as much as me? What's your favorite kind? Extra points if you can recommmend one for me to try next year. Have a wonderful Christmas y'all, I'll see you in the new year.
