I can't believe I never got around to writing this. I bought Lego Advent Calendars for an excellent price, way in advance, thanks to Mir's tip. Every day in December was a joy! The boys got up, changed out of pajamas, ate their breakfasts, everything super fast and efficient . . . so they could open the Lego Star Wars surprise of the day.
Each tiny creation was so clever. Some were mini figures, others were miniature ships and creatures.

The series finished with a Christmas tree and a Santa Yoda, of course!
