Advent calendars are evil.
Yes, they are.
Why? Well, they are evil mainly because they cause stress.
Every time I look at our advent calendar I am reminded of how few days there are left before Christmas and then I start to panic about everything that still needs to be done.
Advent calendars = Stress = Evil.
I also made the mistake of buying one of those pretty little advent calendars that you can fill yourself.
3 kids + 25 advent calendar pockets to fill = 75 things = More Stress = Evil.
Yes, I have to come up with seventy-five different things to put in the advent calendar every December. On top of the stockings, presents, cooking, cleaning, card writing, decorating, visiting, celebrating and gosh knows what else, I also have to come up with seventy-five love notes, chocolates or small toys to fill the stupid advent calendar with.
I don't have time for all of this.
It's evil, I tell you.
