I know there are those who wait on my wise words to live their lives… OK, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration.
I was musing the other day, as I looked at the advent calendar, now empty of chocolate. Of course I didn’t eat any chocolate treats; the very idea. I was musing on behalf of everyone else. I am altruistic like that. What happens now your advent calendars are empty?
Some of you have had calendars filled with Lego toys. Others with sweet treats. Some have treated their doggy pals. Others have merely gazed upon pretty pictures. Those who have remembered the ‘reason for the season’ have seen pictures of Jesus, the wise men, stables and other Biblical reminders. Whatever has been behind those 24 doors, it is now over for another year.
But need it be? What if we had a calendar shaped like a heart which ran from December 25th to February 14th? What delights could be behind each of those doors. I will let you ponder a moment…
That’s enough pondering. What about a calendar from February the 15th to Easter, shaped like an egg. I do not need to suggest a small chocolate egg behind each door and a large one behind the last. Oh, I do, well that’s my idea.
Next a calendar running from Easter until Wimbledon, shaped like a Tennis ball. What could that contain? Then one running till the summer holidays shaped like the sun. Or as we are in England, shaped like a rain cloud. Then a Halloween calendar, actually I was sent one of these by an American friend, so they exist, at least in America. Then whilst on the subject of America, we borrow Thanksgiving and have a calendar running till then. Which brings us around to Advent. OK, so we have to extend our Advent calendar a few days.
Of course, we could just simplify it all and have one calendar to rule them all. It starts on December 26th and runs all year. I know, if it was full of small gifts or choccies it would be a bit large. But ingenuity will overcome that. It could hang on the walls in a long strip or be in book form. Maybe it could be delivered monthly.
Now I had better get in there quick before Cadbury’s or Nestle copy my idea and produce a yearly calendar. I am sure there is no other kind of product that enables you to mark each day of the year.
Here is an order link to the years treat Calendar by Nevin: www.yearlycalendarsarebrill.co.org.com.eu.uk.com.ir The calendars are a mere £9999999.99 each and come in a variety of types. If you buy two, we discount you 99p, now that is a bargain. We ship anywhere in the world for a small shipping cost FOB (freight on board, in other words you cover import duties.) It’s a real bargain.
If you have really tried to order one, then don’t blame me. I just had my tongue in my cheek for a bit of after Christmas fun.

This could be a basis for a YA novel, eh? 🙂
I need to get writing 🙂
