We made Christmas count-down chains on Sunday by the traditional hot-gluing miniature candy bars on ribbon.
It was November 30, so we needed to put 24 candies on our chain.
And I put on 26, because I was confused.
That is why I got to eat two miniature candy bars today.
(My younger sister spent about a half-hour working out her pattern. It took me five minutes, and mine looks better than hers. As she says, hers is more intelligent. But who wants an intelligent Christmas count-down chain?)
