I love advent calendars. Even the old fashioned ones I used to get as a kid with a picture behind each door were enough to get me jumping out of bed every morning in December. Nowadays they’re even better – who can resist a chocolate advent calendar? The excitement of counting down to Christmas one delicious treat at a time – who doesn’t want that?! The thing is, this year (for various reasons) I won’t be getting an advent calendar… I’ll still be counting down the days though – just instead of eating one good thing a day, I’ll be DOING ONE GOOD THING A DAY instead. Whether that’s donating a coat at this year’s New York Cares Coat Drive or something as simple as a coffee and a chat for someone who needs one. I haven’t got 25 things yet – so suggestions are welcome, and of course please feel free to join in. I’ll be posting on here to let you know how it goes, so watch this space.
