Happy Holidays! Welcome to the ITM Advent Calendar. Each day from now until Christmas, ITM will feature a festive photo for you to enjoy (save, share, add as a wallpaper for your mobile device, etc.).
Advent calendars have been used celebrate the season since the 1700’s. Traditional versions included doors or windows with dates leading up to Christmas. Behind each was a surprise. These varied from smaller parts to a lager image, candies or trinkets. In Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, a daily Yule calendar television show is aired up until Christmas Eve.
Today’s image is a tiny toy treasure from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” The holly topped skull is part of the creepy Christmas decor found in the home of ITM reporter Michael Gavin.
Tune in tomorrow (and every day until Christmas) for a new seasonal surprise!
