Are you impressed that I actually set up my candy Advent calender before December 1st? I sure am! I've had it for as long as I can remember (and probably even before that). Here's what is written on the back:
Timmy [don't know who that is!]

December First to Christmas
Is the longest time of year,
Seems as the old Santa
Never will appear.

How many days till Christmas,
It's so mighty hard to count,
So this little candy ribbon
Will tell the exact amount.

[I think the person meant 'untie'] a candy every night
When the sandman casts his spell,
And Christmas will be here
By the time you reach the bell.

I guess I should have read the back before I ate my little Snickers bar THIS MORNING instead of 'when the sandman casts his spell'. Doh! But when you think about it: Why would someone eat candy right before going to bed? Who wrote this thing?

A dentist?

You are one organized Finn! I'm still mulling over what kind of advent calendar to get Scott... ooops, almost too late.

Lol - definitely a dentist... But they never alude to brushing your teeth after eating either...

Does Mrs. TBF also have one of those, too, or are you the sole owner of the goodies?

cs - Mrs. TBF doesn't have one. And if she did, I don't think she'd eat the candy anyway.
