So, I love my mom:
But she’s a bit nutty. She’s real big on holidays, which is awesome. But she has a bit of trouble letting go of some traditions, even though I’ve clearly outgrown them.
|She's good at guilt.|
Yeah. So I shouldn’t have been surprised when she presented me with this:
For those of you who don’t know, an advent calendar counts down til Christmas, with a chocolate in the shape of something Christmassy for each day. So yeah. Boyfriend thinks it’s funny. Or sad. Not sure.
So yeah, I have an advent calendar. I figured I might as well keep it at this point.
|I'm funny, damnit.|
Anyway, so cut to Sunday, where this texting happened between me and Boyfriend:
Boyfriend: How’s the advent calendar going?
Me: It’s day two of this delicious advent chocolate
Boyfriend: Is there a Jesus thing in there too?
Me: No silly. It’s dark chocolate and jesus was white.
Boyfriend: My bad.
I opened up day two of the chocolates, and it was a horseshoe. Um, what?
Me: Today’s chocolate is a horseshoe! What does that have to do with Christmas?
Boyfriend: Everything if you think about it.
Boyfriend: Horseshoes are all about being lucky and believing in magic
Me: Santa magic?
Boyfriend: Like that.
