This is the first year we make an advent calendar. The idea came to us when we received a gift. What that gift was you will find out on the 24th, when the gift will also be yours. We really hope you enjoyed this calendar – we enjoyed creating it! We also hope you appreciate our efforts with inspiring to pick up alt. proc. help people learn and connect in our different channels. If you do, please consider
becoming a Supporting Member, we would really appreciate it! Happy holidays!
