Advent. It is the BEST. We love it. We have all the supplies you need for an AMAZING ADVENT! Look! All the Advent Calendars! Big ones! Small ones! Ones with Kittens!!! Oh, and of course, Baby Jesus. We do also have Baby Jesus.
I’m hoping you’ll believe me when I say that we have the BEST selection of Advent Calendars in town. I mean, Santa is watching me, so I wouldn’t lie.
There is, of course, something just so very fun about finding secrets and stickers behind little paper doors. But that’s just the foundation of fun that Advent offers.
The whole point of Advent is to GET EXCITED! Something big and wonderful is on it’s way! For some, the big wonderful thing is the birth of Jesus. For others, it’s that time spent with family around a Christmas tree opening presents and sipping hot chocolate. Some are just excited that the end of Winter has begun and Spring is on it’s way. There are so many reasons to get excited about the holidays.
We all know that time moves strangely during the holidays. You’re so busy wrapping and writing and buying and cooking that the whole of December flies by and suddenly you’re picking up the torn wrapping paper from the floor the day after Christmas and wondering where the time went.
That, my dears, is why we have Advent. Advent is all about spending some time in the present moment and just letting all the excitement build in your spirit! It’s about getting your mind ready to party! It’s about waiting and wishing and hoping and ANTICIPATION!!
Every day you open one of those little boxes, you get to spend one minute just being VERY VERY EXCITED! Forget about the stress of the holiday for a minute every day. Whether you do it with kitten stickers, with the cast of Frozen or with picturesque scenes of the holy night when Jesus was born, we have the perfect calendar for you.
Get ‘em while they last!
Have a happy Advent!
