The first day of the Christmas chain:
Set up your advent calendar(s)
Some of you will have a calendar already and perhaps even a chocolate one. For those of you without one, go out and buy one!! Or, if that is not a possibility, there are a number of very entertaining virtual ones to bookmark. You could try the following:

These two are for children but have some fun ideas

And this is a virtual advent calendar on facebook

So you have no excuses for not getting into the spirit!!

    Yaaay! First day of advent!

      I think that advent started about a week ago but who cares – we have chocolate and fun stuff to do!

    Back to theological school for you!

    However, it is the first day of chocolate, a worthy cause of celebration.

    OK, that previous comment from me was directed at E&S, but I didn’t get it in the right place.

    So, I looked at the Guardian advent calendar, got down the first half of the Christmas boxes, put up the wreath that Adrienne and I made last year on my apt door, ate some mini-Mandarins, and gathered stones from the beach. You may not think the last one is very Christmassy, but it is an essential step to ensuring that the small artificial tree in the hall remains standing.It was high tide and there were big breakers coming in, so it was all very dramatic.

    What did you do?

      I sewed Adrienne’s christmas jammie pants and made her a new stocking with the letter ‘A’ on it. I made tourtiere filling for the pie to take down to Rick’s mum for Christmas and I did some present shopping. I never did get around to setting up mu advent calendar!

    Advent obviously means advent calendar time. Duh.

    I played Christmas Majong online. Still in search of advent calendars. I will go to the new mall this weekend and see what I can find.
