Astro advent calandar.
To count the 25 days until the end of Christmas shopping frenzy, we often open a little panel on a cardboard Christmas picture every day. We find a little chunk of fattening chocolate (not even DARK chocolate!) to chew on and stare at the little door that opened in the middle of Santa's left eye. If you are a guy, you are still relieved to see many doors left until Christmas Eve afternoon, which is when the quick "hunt and kill" shopping starts - usually just ending up with a handful of gift cards since our female companions have already been grazing in the stores and cleaned them out (but more likely we just aren't as creative). Anyway, that's how I feel about shopping....bleah.
So, here is a nice way to count those days from the always fantastic photo essay site Boston.com. A Hubble shot every day until Christmas.
