A nice way to start your day is with a piece of chocolate, not gonna lie.
When I was little, starting Dec. 1, we had a calendar that we’d take turns opening every day and under each little flap for each day of the month, there was always a piece of chocolate and usually something to read. We had them every year for a long time. I don’t remember when they stopped. But it was exciting to have that to do every morning when we came downstairs before school in December. We didn’t always like having to take turns, but we did.
I haven’t had an advent calendar for a long time though – and the other day the roommate said we should’ve gotten one. Maybe next year. They’re not expensive. And you get chocolate for breakfast.
Besides, I love countdowns too.
