The first thing to come out of The Box is The Advent Calendar. My three large children insist that this happens in the same way every year. They go to bed each night with the next day’s pocket sadly empty, but wake up to find that “santa” has left chocolate and joy. Sometimes santa forgets, and has to make a special trip in the afternoon and leave apologetic notes. My children get very upset if this does not happen properly.
Note to new parents who are still in the cute baby’s first Christmas phase: beware, any traditions you begin now will be with you for life, they do not grow out of things.
