8th December 2012

I may shock you to know we're not the only online Advent Calendar out there. We've found some great ones that we'd love to share with you. None of them explicitly say they were inspired by us, but we like to think so anyway!

In this calendar by unashamed geek artist Ermie, she explains some of the things about Christmas that she likes, and that she finds VERY annoying. Warning: may contain swears.
