We have an Advent Calendar that Auntie Bella sent us. And Day 1 is today, December 1st... or so we thought. But this year Advent starts on December 2nd. Does that mean that we will end up with an unopened door?
Apparently the Advent season is of variable length and the start date changes every year. It starts on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day (Advent Sunday) which can fall between November 27th and December 3rd, and always ends on Christmas Eve. So you see we have a door spare. Next year is okay. Advent Sunday is December 1st. But in 2020 (if I am still around to see it) Advent begins on November 29th. Perish the thought. Two doors missing!
However, it matters not, as Auntie Bella's calendar has nice pictures behind each door. Now if it were mealyworms, it would be of the utmost importance!
