So. Where is this headed. Well we all know Christmas is fast approaching. Next Tuesday will be the 1st of December. And what does that mean? It's advent calendar time!!! Now, let me explain. I come from a multi-faith family, but am an atheist myself. However, I love Christmas and all the celebrations and family gatherings that go with it. So nothing religious in it for me, just some good times and good food to be had with people I love. So what about advent calendars then? Well, because I come from a multi-faith background, my parents decided it should be left to me to decide which religion, if any, I would want to join when I was old enough to make up my own mind. This meant that I never ever got an advent calendar. And what I could see was that I was missing out on chocolate. This is a kid's point of view ok?!
Since moving to the UK a few years ago, I've realised that around this time of year, supermarkets fill up with lots of alluring advent calendars. However, as pretty as they look, what they hold inside is often disappointing. I'm a 70% dark chocolate kind of girl and what is inside those calendars is not chocolate in my book!!! So, you probably see where I'm going now!! Sorry this has been so long winded!! Well let me get to the point!
I recently read this post and found this website which totally inspired me. That was that. I had to have that little christmas tree looking garland. So guess what I've been doing this week? Printing, cutting, sticking!
And yesterday, between the doctor and the optician, I got it all together!!! So it gives me a few days to admire it before we can finally open the first tree!!! I love it!!!!!
You know what though, I can't for the life of me find the link to the pdf of the little boxes with the christmassy decoration on them. I've got it saved on my computer, so if you want it, leave me a message with your email address and I'll send it onto you!
Have a nice day!! xx
Edit: thanks to Alana from Canada for finding the link for me!!! Here's where you can find the pdf with the numbers and dots on the boxes
