Ah Christmas. That wonderful, magical time of year when arseholes act like they’re the only ones who need to shop and punks think it’s a really good time of year to work through their parking lot rage issues.
I like to spread that joy out as long as I can. Within reason. Putting up your decorations in November is pushing it. Starting in October is just ridiculous. You’re going to be over it by December 25, you weirdos.
Let’s be clear – you put your decorations up on December 1. It’s the law. And what better way to start than with an advent calendar? It’s such a fun way to ramp up the excitement.
Last year I did a photographic advent calendar which involved dressing up my poor baby in increasingly ridiculous outfits. I totally exploited the fact that he couldn’t move. Sucker!
