Another advent calendar

Radio 4’s Today programme also has an online advent calendar, with each day’s offering an “audio treat” from the past eleven months of early morning broadcasting.  Although as I write it’s after 7pm and today’s entry isn’t available yet.  But I mainly want to draw it to your attention because it will almost certainly feature the moment several months ago when Charlotte Green suffered a fit of the giggles whilst announcing the news of a death, and if you haven’t heard it already you really ought to.

You’ll be delighted to hear that I eventually found a real-life advent calendar which didn’t feature chocolates, although it is a bit godly.  But I suppose that’s forgiveable.  It’s from Oxfam – are they to do with god?  I can never remember.
