Christmas Advent Joyfulness

Christmas and New Year is over for another year but I thought I would post an entry about the best Advent calendar I’ve seen in a while (you’re never too old to own one). It’s based on the illustrations of Eric Carle, someone whose work I’ve loved from an early age. Once opened, a simple sleeve reveals a pop-up Santa, Christmas trees, presents and 25 magical doors. Each one contains an illustrated ornament to put onto the tree (anything from a present to a star to a bauble and a cow – yes, really).
