Advent Calendar – Christmas Eve!

The final day for our calendar, it is hard to believe it is Christmas Eve,  I am going to spend the day listening to Christmas music on BBC Radio 2 and getting ready for tomorrow.  I sometimes think I enjoy Christmas Eve more than Christmas Day itself – there is more of a sense of magic and anticipation!

Back in October, when  my friend, Elly, from the UK and I designed the  advent calendar using a 24 cup mini muffin pan, we had a lot of fun deciding which square would go on each day but I knew we would have this square for today!

I hope you have enjoyed the countdown journey – I certainly enjoyed sharing with you ~ leave me a comment I would love to hear from you.
