It's always fun finding out what chocolate shapes will be hidden behind the door of your advent calender each day. Will it be a Christmas tree? A candle? A bell? An angel? A rocking horse? Perhaps a snowflake? You don't know until you find your little door, get it open, and pull out the little chocolate shape. For some reason I always wonder about listing what I have in my advent calender as I'm counting down to Christmas. Well, this year I actually made that list, so, just for the fun of it, here's the list of what chocolate shapes my advent calender contained - in order - this year:
Walrus wearing Christmasy scarf type thing (at least, that's what it looked like to us)
Moon and stars
The Christmas Star
Holly with berries
I was lucky enough to get an advent calender that included Christmas day this year (not all of them do include Christmas day. Some do, but many don't... Some even go until New Year's day, but very few do that). I'm pointing this out for the benifit of anyone who may have counted the number of items in the list and noticed there were 25 chocolate shapes in the above list rather than the 24 there would have been with most advent calenders.
