As I opened the door to my Advent calendar this morning I was greeted with a little picture of a white lady in a blue robe (I’m guessing it was Mary), and I started to think that even Christian Advent calendars don’t seem to mention Jesus right until at least Christmas Eve…it must have been early. Of course the whole point of Advent is that we anticipate – firstly the birth of the Messiah, and secondly his second coming.
So am I allowed to ask: how do chocolate Advent calendars fit into this? All we anticipate is getting the choccy. So I just don’t get chocolate Advent calendars.
