Counting down the days

Posted on Thursday, December 1st, 2005 at 12:50 pm CET

Someone has been playing Sinterklaas in my office. Last Friday, everyone found a chocolate letter sitting on his or her desk in the morning. This morning we were all surprised with an advent calendar; a small chocolate treat waits behind each door for the countdown to Christmas. What a difference from the cardboard advent calendars from my youth, where all you could look forward to each day was a picture of a reindeer, or maybe a frog in a Santa hat. A succulent Belgian chocolate per day is a big improvement.

What I’d like is a calendar to help me count down the 80+ days we have to wait until our highly anticipated trip to India in March. Maybe a chili a day would help acclimatize us to the spicy food…
