    The video isn’t really of the advent calendar “in action”. It just shows it up close (and made me kind of sick to watch it). I’d like to know how it works as you use each daily square.

    Wow, that is so money! Definitely a “lightbulb” idea… we’ve had one of these for years (which I dust regularly and therefore am painfully aware of the number of squares), yet it’s never even occurred to me. Thanks for sharing.
