Today’s December 1st and this marks the second year I have not gotten an advent calendar from my mom. She would always say, “I know you’re getting too old for this but I still like to send them.” And I loved receiving them. It didn’t matter if I lived 5 miles away or 3,000 miles away, I could expect them by December 1st like clockwork.
Opening those stupid little windows everyday somehow put me in the Christmas spirit. And god knows I always need help getting into the spirit of things. Case in point, someone asked me if I’m excited about getting my Christmas tree. I timidly replied, “umm, yea? I will be I’m sure.” Maybe if I had my advent calendar I would be excited.
