Old traditions still happening

Enter the Honourable Judge's favourite tavern for a dram of Tittle Tattle. There's an ancient bandit in the corner, but I forget his name...

Old traditions still happening

Post by badpenny »

I can't believe people still buy Advent Calendars.
When I was a kid over 50 years ago, their days were numbered.

I Like that. A lot of the traditional advent calendars had 24 windows with a few 25 and now more with 25. The actual religious period varies.

Personally I prefer to give healthy option advent calendars. First day a chunk of carrot, then a bit of celery, etc., and on the last day they get the baby cheeses. :lol:
