Do you remember those cardboard advent calendars with a silly picture of kids getting gifts from Santa, and each day you could open the little perforated cardboard door and get a waxy tasting piece of chocolate? I love those and miss them! This year I decided to make a grown up version of the Advent calendar out of many things I already had around the house. 'God Jul' (goo yule) means Merry Christmas in Norwegian.
I fill the bags with ornaments that we already had (special ones that mean something to us), and chocolates.
See the 'How to' after the jump. And here is a super cute round-up of Advent Calendars.
