Yay! Time to open the advent calendar and not be tempted to secretly empty it of all the chocolatey niceness and swap it with your sisters ssshhh.

It’s starting to fill a whole a lot like Christmas so I thought I would treat you to a little advent calendar of the movie kind! Please be kind and imagine opening a tiny cardboard window just to the side of Rudolf’s head and treat you to, in my opinion the scariest scene from Ghostbusters enjoy.

Whatever you get up to this weekend, enjoy yourselves and try not to eat too much chocolate 😉
