growing up, my grandparents would always send me & my broski christmas advent calendars. some years they would be santa-themed, other years would be nativity-scene themed.

i personally liked the ones with a chocolate delight for each day; i didn’t care what cute picture & sentence they put with it.

my broski put up with a lot :

Me: “ummm, it’s definitely MY turn to open today.”

Broski: “are you sure . . . i thought you did it yesterday?”

Me: “shut up, i’m doing it today! and tomorrow! and days 15 – 25.”

Broksi: “whatever . . .”

it was probably much different than that. i’m sure i said something about doing it EVERYDAY, but my memory is kinda fuzzy in the early childhood years.

this year, my grandparents sent an electronic advent globe download amazingness.

this bad boy does it all!

i received an email notifying me that an advent calendar was given to me as a gift from “Grandma and Grandpa” a few days ago and right away, i clicked the download button!

now a beautiful snowglobe resides on my desktop at work, glowing and sprinkling snow every few minutes.

it’s a pretty sweet advent-globe thingy. you should totally get one. i clicked day one tonight . . .

memories of childhood christmases came flooding back, and i suddenly wished i hadn’t eaten all the chocolate, but rather, shared a little bit with the broksi.
