So, when I saw that Cara at think.vegan.act was giving away advent calendars during VeganMoFo, I jumped at the chance to enter. Did you see her MoFo theme? It was all about veganizing traditional German recipes, and it was really exceptional. In fact, now she has a whole new blog just on that subject called "The Vegan German Inn."
Then, lucky me, I was one of the winners!! I was expecting some cute little German advent calendar with doors that open to show pictures of pretzels or pointy-eared squirrels. And no one knows how to draw advent calendars like the Germans - little rosy-cheeked elves, snow-flocked trees, sparkly packages... they have the best drawings. So imagine my joy and delight when I opened a package to find this beautiful, heavy (!!), and handmade creation!! I've never seen anything like it! It's got little mismatched baby socks and baby gloves with ornaments and ribbons and all sorts of gifties tucked inside each one. And all the goodies are vegan!!! I've seen those advent calendars that have chocolates for each day, but of course the chocolates are always milk chocolate. I never dreamed *I* could have a goodies advent calendar! This is just the most coolest thing ever and I am totally stoked on it.
I could hardly wait for today, December 1st to open my first baby glove! I opened it to find a sparkly little bag with special chocolate covered candies in it... even a little boozy I think! Mmm.
I was feeling so generous, I even shared with Mr. Vegan Eats & Treats!
Thank you Cara, this is the coolest thing ever!
