I'll be honest, when I began this year's Advent Calendar I was not really in the mood for it--in fact, I was pretty sure this would be the last Advent Calendar. Even with so many wonderful contributions, the calendar is always A LOT of work and I just wasn't in the right frame of mind. This year has been a tough one, no lie.
But as I began to put the calendar together, and so many really lovely submissions began to come in, I found my attitude changing--improving--and I really do think this was one of the all time best calendars we've done. So thank you to everyone who took part from those of you who took the time to read and comment to those of you who contributed art, games, fiction.
I hope the calendar did its job and offered a little comfort and joy this holiday season because that's its sole purpose! :-)
Again, my heartfelt thanks to the following contributors:
(In order of appearance)

(please, please let me not have missed anyone--every contribution was so very much appreciated!)
To make life easier on myself, I plan to work on next year's calendar throughout the year rather than wait till the midst of the holiday hubbub (er, yes, I do still use the word hubbub) ;-) So if you come up with something you'd like to contribute to 2021's calendar, no need to wait till the last moment!
In the meantime, I wish each and every one of you a very happy rest of your holiday season! See you in the New Year! (And let it be a better one.)
