2010/349: Advent Calendar

Another fun thing from my childhood. I always had the chocolate-filled ones, and I always get them for the girls now (made in Germany, even!). This year, my best friend found an Advent Calendar greeting card and sent it to me. That was such a sweet surprise, and such a pretty card.
And, it’s just as much fun to open one of the doors each day as it was when I had the chocolate kind as a child.
Pictured on the card is the Dresdner Frauenkirche.

    It’s beautiful! I, too, had chocolate calendars when I was a child. My kids prefer the Lego Advent calendar.

    I don’t care how old you get, Christmas and all it’s traditions have a way of bringing the kid out in ya. Gorgeous pic, it looks like a painting!

  4. How nice!
    This calendar reminds me of the calendars from my childhood. – But there were no chocolate inside. There were small pictures all with subjects about Christmas. My father told us to be careful with the small doors so that we could use it next year. -Never happened 🙂
