Well hello December, didn't you creep up on us pretty darn quickly. It feels like December arrived and so did the bitter cold weather. I had to wear gloves this morning (along with being nestled in a warm scarf and cosy coat).
What better way to greet our beloved chilly December than with a Yankee Candle advent calender*. How beautiful is this cottage shaped calender filled with sweet festive scented tea lights?
Sebastian and I made each other a little advent calender last year- but with the wedding planning well underway we didn't really have much time or money to really properly think about doing it again this year. Though I feel I have a pretty good replacement!
Every door has a little tea light (that burns for hours!) which smells SO good! There are two calenders, one for Christmas Present- for you modern sophisticated elves out there and the other is Christmas Past- for Traditional children like myself. Each have a selection of different smells depending on the theme. If you can't decide which one you think you might prefer you can take the quiz on Yankee Candle's Facebook page.
Let's face it I didn't really need to take the test to find out I love all things traditional, family time and 'Last Christmas' by Wham (I mean, YOU could have taken the test for me and worked it out)! But obviously it turns out I am a Christmas Past kinda girl.
Try the app here and see whether you're Christmas Present or Christmas Past.
***Twenty Three days until Christmas***
What advent calenders do you tend to have? I love the traditional picture ones, partial to a chocolate one but LOVE a homemade one. I am pretty sure this will be a tradition in our future family home.
