Sanstorm’s Advent 1
Behind the first door… is an Advent Calendar!
When I was wee, we had cardboard calendars, and behind each door was a pretty picture that was either a moment from the nativity, or a traditional toy – like a soldier or a drum. It was very exciting, seeing what you’d get.
And there was always a double-sized one for Christmas Eve, with a picture of the stable with the family and the baby.
Then someone dreamed up Chocolate Advent Calendars, and ruined it.
Cheap vile chocolate in crinkly moulds. And no picture. Just a black hole of absent chocolate to adorn your wall.
Much as I dislike these calendars, we have three. Not especially biblical… Two “Hello Kitty” ones, and a “Cars” one.
Very festive 😕
