We thought it would be nice to feel a little more Christmasy by counting down to Christmas with an advent calender. We will keep the advent calendar up to date as long as Wi-fi availability allows.
There are a few signs of Christmas popping up here and there in Asia, but not many. Our advent calendar will help us share the few sightings of Christmas we spotted along the way.
