Today is December 1st! Christmas season is officially upon us! I am a Northern Hemisphere person in a Southern Hemisphere life, so Christmas throws me for a loop every year. Christmas should be COLD. They still listen to Bing's traditional "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" here, but honey, you'll be dreaming for a looooong time. It's summer! This makes it a bit hard for me to get into the spirit. In fact, it's hard to remember it's Christmas at all! But I have kiddos, and it is my duty to make Christmas good fun! Thank goodness I have good friends who kick me into gear. Today, that thanks goes to Aussie Mum, whose blog post about her family's advent calendar saved my children from a potentially missed treat.
