Advent calendar, day 24


This is the final day of the advent calendar! I know, I know, this post is early but I’m going to Virginia to visit my family tomorrow and I won’t be around to post. I decided to include a Menorah for Hanukkah in my advent calendar! So this final post has the Menorah with the fifth candle lit (since people began lighting them on Dec. 20th and they light one a day, and one of them is the candle they use to light the others so the one on the right doesn’t count…) and below is the stable in Bethlehem where Jesus was born. Each of the advent calendar drawings are only about 1 inch high and done with a big window crayon so they’re a bit rough but you get the picture (pun intended). I hope you’ve enjoyed the advent calendar adventure! Special big thanks to my friend and coworker Vijaya for helping come up with ideas for the windows.

A sleigh! Much like the one Santa rides in! I know, this post is early but I’m going to Virginia to visit my family tomorrow and I won’t be around to post.

Poinsettia, also known as the Christmas plant, flowers at Christmas and is sometimes compared to the Star of Bethlehem which apparently was in full bloom over the stable where Jesus was born.

This day is a snowflake but it was very hard to photograph with my little phone camera! This is the best I could do. Here’s hoping for a white Christmas (on a day when the temps hit almost 60 in NYC)!

…and the stockings were hung by the chimney with care…
Wouldn’t it be funny to put a bunch of socks in someone’s Christmas stocking? Socks in a sock!

It’s even darker and rainier today so I did another closeup… today, a Christmas umbrella for all the rain. Maybe we’ll have snow by Christmas!

A dove! It’s very dark and rainy outside today which makes lots of reflections on the window, so I just did a closeup.
