Remember when you were little, on the first of December you were given an Advent Calendar?
Back in the day, (I'm talking early 1960s) my Advent Calendars were strictly two-dimensional and covered in glitter. All the doors, when opened, showed prettily coloured Christmas-themed religious scenes.... shepherds, Kings, angels, stables, gold, frankincense, myrhh.... then on Christmas Eve, a double door behind which was the nativity scene.
No Simpsons/Barbie/My Little Pony/Transformers etc
Unlike today, when the rampant commercialisation of Christmas can yield just about anything on/in an Advent Calendar.
Which is why Small Dog received this......
Now, in our defence, we have to say it wasn't our idea. Artistic Daughter saw it and couldn't resist.
Which is why this was the scene this morning......
That's a 'mmmmmmmnnmmm' face if ever I saw one.
We now have another 23 days of Small Dog's high expectations.
