Advent Calendar is a Scandinavian tradition. Everyone sells them. I have an advent calendar from the local school marching band where I can win a prize every day, I also have a scratch-and-win lottery advent calendar (but I confess it's more like a scratch-and-be-disappointed) for every one of the 24 days of December leading up to Christmas.

I have made an Advent Calendar for you this year, but instead of prizes or disappointments, each door will reveal a surprise!

My purpose of the Nordic Simplicity blog and emails is to inspire you. This Advent Calendar is a glimpse into what inspires me, and I hope these 24 tiny blog posts will give you inspiration, delight and in between, some moments of good old-fashioned helpless giggling.

24 mini blog posts, one for each day of December until Christmas. Enjoy!
