Notes and Credits

Click the doors! A new one opens each day of Advent. Enjoy, and be sure to check back every day for new artwork! Also be sure and tell me which pics are your favorites :)
Oh, and look inside at each sprite for comments on the artwork!

Q: So what is an Advent calendar?
A: An Advent calendar is traditionally a board or something similar with a design on it and 24 or 25 little doors. Each day of December, a new door is opened, to reveal a picture, a message, or sometimes even a little gift or a treat. (This digital Advent calendar's got a new piece of art for every day until Christmas.) It's a fun way of counting down to Christmas!

Q: Why does your Advent calendar start on November 30? Seems like an odd place to start an Advent calendar. Why not just begin on December 1?
A: Simple. Advent doesn't actually start on December 1, contrary to popular belief. In the official liturgical calendar, it starts 4 Sundays before Christmas. And this year, Advent officially starts on November 30 (the fourth Sunday before Christmas, which is on a Thursday.)

Q: What program do you use for these?
A: Photoshop CS6.

Also, for the record, my family generally leaves decorating, tree-buying, etc. for the very last minute so we can leave the decorations up longer after Christmas. The only reason my cats here are doing it earlier is so I could fit in everything I wanted to XD
