14 Les Poissonchat’s Wondrous Advent Calendar – Composed Nonchalance

You may as well do it tomorrow

The thing is, you may as well do it tomorrow. I mean it’s only Wednesday, and even if it were Thursday there still’d be Friday. But then maybe Friday isn’t ideal, which is why you also could just postpone it until next week. 

Unless, of course, the thing is something really splendid, wonderful, mind bogglingly gorgeous, then, naturally, you should do it right now. 

You get my gist? It’s the quintessential ingredient of composed nonchalance that will make your Chrismas a very French one. 

This is Les Poissonchat’s Wondrous Advent Calendar! Advent calendars are a huge tradition where I come from: you make little gifts for your loved ones every day until Christmas Day, fourandtwenty little surprises. The advent calendars come in beautifully old fashioned prints on cardboard, with extra glitter, and each day there’s a paper door waiting for you to pry open. Others are more elaborate, pretty baskets filled with twenty four numbered parcels, decorated with red velvet ribbons. The one I’m making for you this season is altogether a different one, and, quite obviously, it’s about beloved France, Christmas in France, and after all, what it takes to celebrate a proper French Christmas.
