An online advent calendar? Oh my!

By | November 3, 2013

Years ago, someone (and I cannot remember whom) created an online Advent Calendar.  I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking… but there are tons of advent style calendars online.

Yes, the tacky ones!

But no, the calendar I remember was different.  It was created by a blogger, and I remember it was quite popular.  Once a certain “day” became available, you would click and there would be one link to something “fun” and another link to something “meaningful.”

Well, I miss that Advent Calendar, and I wanted to create something very similar.  I still want to keep the one thing this and the one thing that aspect, but I haven’t quite decided on what it all will entail.

I also want to reach out to my readers to leave a suggestion in the comments section below, of websites that are worthwhile, fun, or truly unique, something that would interest and not offend anyone!

The site will be called:

I still cannot believe that domain was available.  It seemed like a given that it would have been taken long ago, but it was not.  Now, was taken, and it is up for sale… for over $3800.  But really, people always “say” THE Festive Season… well, at least I do.

Stay tuned!

What a great idea! I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I’m a big fan of everything DIY so it would be fun to have a DIY advent… 1 party idea, 1 gift idea, 1 decor idea… something like that?

Yes, I was going to do a gift one, especially gifts that help someone for the “something meaningful” and something like a recipe or a poem, etc for the “something fun”. But I will switch it up to keep it interesting. I really need to get cracking! Christmas will be here before we know it.

I think that the advent calendars you are thinking of are those created by Leslie Harpold, who died in 2006. They were something special, and I miss them every year.

I look forward to seeing your advent calendar, which will be a treat.

OMG! Yes!!!! I had forgotten the name and I was struggling to remember. Thank you. I did not know that she passed away. So sad. Her Advent calendars were so enjoyable. I’m not even going to try to be as awesome as her, but it do want to give it a go.
