GEORGE AGED 4 BLOG – Advent Countdown to Christmas – ONLY 24 SLEEPS TO CHRISTMAS
Hi, George here. None of my welcome to my world crap because you can’t come in anyway and Grandad’s not allowing me enough number of words.
Grandad has said I can do a Daily Advent Countdown to Christmas Blog Post, covering the 25 days 1st December to 25th December, Christmas Day. Ain’t that exciting?.
He says to give my thoughts and comments, hopes and fears and observations about Christmas, but with just two rules:
- I have to be jolly.
- I am limited to just one sentence a day!
I know I have already broken one rule by doing 6 sentences already. But that’s because I have to explain what these Daily Advent Countdown to Christmas Blog Post are about.
Can you believe all the extra work that means I have to do, writing a Daily Advent Countdown to Christmas Blog Post every single day whilst my excitement for Christmas is building to a fever pitch crescendo?
Not only that I have to do FULLTIME SCHOOL as well. Us school children are not like you skiving adults working from home. We are out there doing fulltime school risking life and limb keeping the country running and motivated. The government’s insistence that we children attend fulltime school during the pandemic smacks of the days they used to send kids up chimneys.
Shouldn’t everyone be out on their doorsteps on a Thursday night banging their saucepans in gratitude to us school children?
Grandad has taught me that I need to have a theme for my Daily Advent Countdown to Christmas Blog Post. And I have chosen “Driving Home For Christmas” the Chris Rea song which is our family’s Christmas theme tune (along with Fairy Tale of New York) and motto.
Every day in my Daily Advent Countdown to Christmas Blog Post as “Driving Home For Christmas” is my theme, my main picture will be Santa (& Rudolf in many cases) driving home for Christmas and always in a red vehicle. Mostly in a red car. That’s because I love red cars. Red cars are the best cars ever. Top Gear say so, Auto Express say so, Autocar say so, What Car say so and they even get the consumer magazine Which award for best car.
Finally, my thought for the day. Today, 1st December, we all begin our Advent Calendars. Any advent calendar worth having has to have chocolate behind the doors or in the drawers. But have you seen the pokey little bit of chocolate shaving you get. Not worth having to be honest.
As you know since starting school in September, they have taught me to become a radical thinker.
My radical thoughts about advent calendars are that the bits of advent chocolate should be scrapped and replaced with a real bar of chocolate behind the door each day to make Advent more enjoyable, exciting and practical. Like advent was meant to be.
So, open the doors each day in the GEORGE REED ADVENT CALENDAR and you will find the following full size bars of chocolate:
December Day 1 Mars
December Day 2 Bounty
December Day 3 Kit Kat
December Day 4 M&Ms
December Day 5 Cadbury Dairy Milk
December Day 6 Cadburys Fruit & Nut
December Day 7 Fudge
December Day 8 Yorkie
December Day 9 Milky Way
December Day 10 Aero Mint
December Day 11 Aero
December Day 12 Galaxy
December Day 13 Cadbury Whole Nut
December Day 14 Curly Wurly
December Day 15 Wispa
December Day 16 Crunchie
December Day 17 Rollo’s
December Day 18 Flake
December Day 19 Smarties
December Day 20 Freddo
December Day 21 Haribo’s
December Day 22 Milky Bar
December Day 23 Maltesers
December Day 24 Lion
December Day 25 Mars Celebration (Tin Of)
And… and here is my second, radical thought on Advent Calendars.
Why do we have to finish the Advent Calendar on 24th or 25th December, what is the point? The GEORGE REED ADVENT CALENDAR will go on giving doors to open offering a different bar of chocolate until 12th Night or 6th January. I cannot see any reason why it shouldn’t.
December Day 26 Munchies
December Day 27 Double Decker
December Day 28 Caramel
December Day 29 Turkish Delight
December Day 30 Boost
December Day 31 Ferrero Rocher
January Day 1 Guylian SeaShells
January Day 2 Cadbury’s Bourneville
January Day 3 Time Out
January Day 4 Picnic
January Day 5 Quality St
January Day 6 Anything you like from the Hotel Chocolat Range
I will ask Boris Johnson to make that law. After all he does owe me one, this year, after preventing me from seeing my Nanny and Mamma for most of the year!
I don’t know why no one has thought of that before. After all mankind has had 2,000 years to think about it.
My radical thinking scares me. Those amazing unique ideas came after just 3 months at school it is scary to think what I will be coming up with after 14 years at school.
Well I think that’s more than a sentence or two. Happy Christmas Advent
