One of my favorite things about Christmas is the anticipation. I love counting the days until it’s time to sing the carols, eat the feast and unwrap the gifts.
That’s why I have always adored Advent Calendars, because they help me count down. As a little girl I loved the store-bought kind, with pieces of chocolate hiding behind perforated cardboard windows, one for each day of December. I tried very hard not to skip ahead.
This month, i’m enjoying Advent Calendars on the Web. They evoke that same giddiness and joy, without causing cavities. Here are a few for you to enjoy, too:
* Flip Flop Flyin’s Advent Calendar, featuring Craig Robinson’s whimsical, wonderful, miniature world
* 25 Fun-Filled Days of Surprise by Leslie Harpold, including charming anecdotes and holiday links
* Advent Calendar: An Illustrated Holiday by the ever-so-lovely Penelope
