Well, this is embarrassing.
I can’t even believe I’m about to say this, but I missed an opportunity to celebrate here with you yesterday. I know. I’m still gobsmacked, too. I was getting ready for bed last night when it hit me. I don’t know where the thought came from – possibly my mental alarm was set off by the scent of my vanilla candy cane hand cream, or perhaps I was picking up on the subliminal signals being sent by the sparkly reindeer on my pajama pants; but whatever the reason, the fact remains: I was so busy complaining about my recent workload in Corporate World yesterday that I didn’t say:
Welcome to December !!! We have less than one month till Christmas !!!
Apparently I’m not the only person who’s stuck in something of a holiday time-warp. When I got to my desk this morning, I found that someone had given me an advent calendar. The chocolate kind. The ensuing sugar rush (I had three days to catch up on, after all) left me feeling appropriately festive and gave me a fantastic idea.
Starting next Monday, words become superfluous will be transformed into your very own virtual advent calendar.
I’d give you all chocolate through my computer screen if I could, but since that could get a little messy, you’ll have to settle for some virtual sugar instead. Meow.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Virtual eyelash batting aside, this is going to be delicious, you guys. Check here every day from December 9th to 24th for a little Christmas treat from me to you. Our weekly features will continue as well; they’ll just be a little more … festive … than usual.
Oh, this is going to be fun. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to do a little detective work and thank my mystery Santa. In the meantime, how do you count down to the holidays? With an advent calendar? Another tradition? Tell me all about it in the Comments!
