Tasks for Advent: Post a pic of your advent calendar.
The cat wasn't in a festive mood (he thought it safer to watch my photo antics from under the living room table and wait 'till I was done), so a red background will have to do.
Anyway, the Lions' Club branch of a small town north of Cologne named Leichlingen publishes these calendars every year as part of a charity lottery: The featured picture is painted by a kid -- it's a different picture each year.
A former colleague of mine is a member of that branch of the Lions' Club and has been sharing these calendars for (at least) the past 10 years. I got mine today, so it's a perfect fit for my first "16 Festive Tasks" post: square 5 -- Advent.
