SIL Nancy taught me about this wonderful Advent custom. She has a wonderful Tree with good-sized pockets that's hung on the wall beside the kitchen table. Each morning my nephew finds a candy inside the pocket. And when J stays over, there's one for her, as well. So when I saw this snowman at the Millarville market last month, I quickly picked him up. J was ever so excited to get him hung up. Each morning of December has come with a bit of excitement. The pockets are just large enough to fit a Hershey's kiss. It's also helping J recognize numbers. Now, the trouble is Mom remembering each night to put the candy inside!
