Reading Time: 4 minutesImage adapted from: Xavier Romero-Frias (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsMy kids have a reusable box-style Advent calendar, which for the past few years I have stocked with puzzle pieces. I have to do the puzzle myself ahead of time, so I can split the pieces up into days where the pieces actually fit together. This year the puzzle will eventually reveal a “Twelve Days of Christmas” gifts seek-and-find: already we’ve found two turtledoves, two of the calling birds, and one gold ring.
Unfortunately, this gets the song in my head first thing every morning, where it stays for the rest of the day and into the next morning, when, if by chance I have lost it by then, it comes right back into my head again. Fortunately, that means I’ve been thinking about the song a lot, which means I can write you all a post about it and get it into your own heads!
