I've been cutting out the pockets for more Advent Calendars this evening and a thought struck me.
We all start our Advent countdown by taking the sweetie out of the pocket numbered 1.
What happens if we start at the pocket marked 24? If we start at number 24 we know that there are 24 days to go before Christmas Day. Thus, when we get to pocket number 1 we know that there is 1 more day to go before the exciting day to which we have all been looking forward!
It's just a thought.
