Tis the season to be … gently amused by various yuletide fripperies. Like the fabulous First Dog On The Moon Crikey Advent Calendar. Days and days of Christmas fun. Just follow the link (click on the tree and cyber elves will whisk you to our secret Advent Calendar grotto) and then click the numbers in our 24-day Looming Birth Of Jesus And A Hard Earned Break countdown … seasonal surprises lurk behind each digit. Sorry, but we should have had this done for Monday … you can still click on 1 and 2 though and we stuck something in 3 this morning. Follow the tree link first.
