There will be 24 different themes - which won't be as complicated as usual!
So to “play” in keeping with the Advent Calendar idea here’s what to do…
Use the theme for the day on which you are ready to start a new book. So if you're ready for a new book tomorrow use the theme for December 1st.
When you finish that book & are ready to start another use the theme for that day.eg: on the 3rd you would use theme three. If you get through more than one book a day (I’m looking at you Nu-knees lol) you can go back & use a day you missed or if none missed, any of the previous themes.
If you want to really get into the Christmas spirit try & get your books to have a Christmas connection in somewhere. For example: 1st December = Boys Names so Joseph, Nicolas, Gabriel would be fine
Once we get to the 24th, when an Advent Calendar traditionally ends, go back & use a day’s theme you haven't used or one of your choice. Does that make sense? I have tried to keep it simple – honest! Just shout out if you need any help :o)
