Happy December! Even though I’ve had my decorations up since November 1st, there’s no denying that the holiday season is finally, officially HERE! (I know most people start decorating after Thanksgiving but I’m what you’d call Christmas obsessed). There’s no denying its Christmastime. Aka my favorite time of the year.
I can’t even explain what this time of year does for me. I’m just so HAPPY during the holidays. The holiday lights, holiday films, decor, what’s not to love. With the beginning of December, that means the start of one of my favorite traditions:
This year we are opening up two different advent calendars. The first one is this super adorable Disney themed advent calendar from Primark. The boxes are empty so you have to fill them up with whatever you want. They’re pretty small and only really fit small pieces of candy. What I ending up doing is filling some of the boxes with candy and some with numbers. If you get a box with a number you get to pick out a gift bag that’s filled with cute Christmas themed stuff. (And one has a gift card in it!).
Our other advent calendar is a gourmet treats one I found at Sam’s Club. According to the packaging its filled with different gourmet treats including popcorn, chocolates, cookies, etc. I’m really excited to start opening it up tonight. I love trying new foods and this is the perfect opportunity to try some new sweets out.
And of course we can’t leave Loki out! He has his own dog advent calendar from Target. (This will be his 3rd year with the Molly’s Bakery advent calendar from Target. He LOVES it so much!).
