Advent Calendar

By james, 4 December, 2023

Welcome to day four of the Drupal Advent Calendar, and today we are getting a little introspective as James Shields (lostcarpark) talks about his new Advent Calendar module and reflects on how the Drupal Advent Calendar started.

The Drupal Advent Calendar was a daft idea I started last year (2022). It literally hit me as I was falling asleep on the last night of November.

Last night, as I lay in bed, a thought hit me.

There are many themed Advent Calendars. They used to be aimed at children, but these days there are many aimed at adults too. As a fifty-two year old kid, I was looking forward to opening the first door of my LEGO advent calendar, while my partner had been talking about her very expensive Whiskey calendar.

So, it hit me. Drupal needs an Advent Calendar.
