The Joy of the Countdown
The holiday season is officially upon us, and whether you dread it or fully embrace it, there’s simply no avoiding it. Personally, I cringe at the sound of Christmas carols playing in stores as early as October, but now that Turkey Day is over (along with any chance of sticking to my diet) I say bring on Christmas.
You don’t need to go full-on Buddy the Elf preparing for the holiday festivities, but it’s easy to get into the spirit just by finding a bit of joy in each day leading up to Kris Kringle’s big visit. Holiday advent calendars are a longstanding tradition and aren’t just for kids anymore. Check out some of these unique advent calendars that will have you counting down the days with glee:
