Another advent calendar | En julkalender till

Did I say that we have nine advent calendars in the house? Well, we do. It's a bit crazy, but we like them all. This one is a favorite, my mum made it for A a few years back. I realized though that I would create a monster by giving A twenty-four presents twenty-four days in a row, so instead I gift wrapped Christmas tree ornaments that he could unpack and decorate a tree during the month of December. Huge success, and the tradition has stuck with us ever since.

Sa jag att vi har nio adventskalendrar? Det har vi i alla fall. Det är rätt knasigt, men vi gillar allihop. Den här är en favorit, min mamma gjorde den till A för några år sedan. Jag insåg dock att jag skulle skapa ett monster om jag gav A tjugofyra presenter tjugofyra dagar i rad, så jag slog in julgransprydnader istället, som han kunde packa upp och dekorera en gran med under hela december fram till julafton. Stor succé, och traditionen har blivit kvar sedan dess.


  1. Your advent calendar collection is wonderful. I'm catching up on your posts and this is definitely my favorite -- the colors and silhouettes are so eye catching and cheerful. I can see why you have so many.

    1. Thanks a lot, I'm really glad you like the calendars!

      I like this one a lot too, my mum actually bought all of the material and the pattern in the 70's and has kept it in a drawer since then... It was all forgotten about until a few years ago when we found it!

      I'll try to make the pattern digital, so that I can share it with you all in time for December 2013.
