Advent Calendar: The Great and Spacious Building

Day 3

Opening door 3 reminds me of hitting the snow off trees and getting it all over the person walking behind you.  Although I’m not sure that ever worked.  It would always get on me just as much as it got on my victim.

It also reminds me of the time I learned what whiplash was.  I was walking through the trees and getting whipped in the face by the person in front of me.  When I cried out, “Ouch, whiplash!”  My good friends laughed at my lack of knowledge and told me that wasn’t what whiplash was.  I guess that wasn’t so much the moment I learned what whiplash was as much as it was the moment I learned what it wasn’t.

I think I was getting whiplash confused with whip rash.  Whip rash is a thing, right?  The rash you get from repeated whippings?  They explain it in the deleted scenes of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  As if you needed another reason to not watch that movie.

Didn’t even have to think about this one.  It’s easy to tell what it is.  It’s the same one as yesterday, just further away.

It’s the haunted house.  But when you back up you see that it also has a moat that goes around the property.  Do you see how it runs straight across the front of the building and then curves around behind it?

The moat only reinforces the argument that it’s a haunted house.  Do you know any moated buildings that aren’t haunted by poltergeist?  I didn’t think so.

It looks like this house has two bridges over the moat.  That is really cool.  I bet one is a decoy bridge to trick thieves and ghost hunters from getting inside.

Also, from further away the haunted house looks like what I imagine the great and spacious building in Lehi’s dream looked like.

    After much thought and prayer…. I have come to believe that this is Santa’s sleigh and it’s full of presents. Look carefully, and then you will agree. (still procrastinating on cleaning my house…….)

    This has nothing to do with the chocolate, scroll back up to the advent calander. Take a look at the box over Santa’s face. Doesn’t it look like a pair of socks? Maybe that’s what Day 1 is suppose to be. (ok, now I am ready to go clean my house)
