Digital Advent

Digital Advent Calendar, with a powdery Christmas tree

Once upon a time there was a little girl who was very good and very patient. One year, at the beginning of December, she got an advent calendar to count down the days to Christmas. Each day she would wake up with delight, and open the next little cardboard door, and seize the little chocolatey prize within.

Then one day a terrible injustice happened.

The family dog, a loveable creature, but greedy to the bone, climbed all the way up the stairs on her short little legs, barged into the little girls’ room, and snuffled out the last few remaining chocolates in the advent calendar!

When the little girl discovered the looting, she was heartbroken.

Today the little girl is fully grown, but I still try to get her an advent calendar every year to make up for the time she was so very good, but her patience was punished. This year I’ve made her a digital advent calendar. Each day there is a clue to the location of a little surprise. Follow along with us!

By the way, any suggestions for really good hiding places or clues are welcome in the comments!
