Counting The Days

In Austria we don't only have Advent wreaths for the countdown to Christmas, but also special calendars: The Advent Calendars have 24 "windows", each of them reveals an image, a poem or a small gift such as a toy or a chocolate item. The first "window" was opened yesterday (December 1), the last will be opened on December 24 (Christmas Eve).


  1. The concept of this of course has been highly commercialized here in North America, but I was familiar with the idea before. This one's lovely!

  2. A splendid way to mark the season and countdown the days.
