Two years ago I wrote in my Christmas Journal about my Advent calendars – and it was today’s prompt: Counting down the days until Christmas
I wanted to use something with numbers of course! And in Shimelle’s packet I found these nice little bingo cards by Jenni Bowlin – perfect! And I used a red envelope to “hide” the journaling for that day (actually there is no need to hide it – it says: Counting down the days – there has always been something to count down the days to Christmas Eve: simple calendars with chocolate, pictures or messages – as well as bigger ones with little boxes/bags. And we still are wondering why the chocolate calendars in the UK have just 24 doors to open – and not 25! Do you know why?)

I wrote about some snow in a town called Erkrath in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. I found the picture in a blog post but I don’t know which it was!? We definitely didn’t have snow that day so I wished we would have some with that tree!
