Today is the first day of Advent. I don't make a wreath anymore. It's not quite the same when you live alone and I didn't buy an advent calendar either, although that's also a ritual of the season that I love. But thanks to Avedon, I can enjoy lots of those.
She's found a whole collection of on-line calendars. My favorites are the Rocket Society, the Tate Museum and Retrospec. If you know of any others, please leave a link.
