Miette Advent Calenday Day 21: Ah, from the mouths of babes

From Miette

This year, we've been very proud to offer, for the very first time, Adorable Milk Chocolate Mrs. Claus! Finally! We're not entirely sure what Mrs. Claus' role is in the North Pole pantheon, but we're sure she contributes quite a bit, and deserves to be commemorated in delicious chocolate form. She's rosy of cheek, pleasantly plump, and sporting a holly tiara that we all really, really need. Hey, you have to work Christmas eve, you might as wear a fabulous holly tiara.

One young customer was not very impressed, however. When his mom suggested Mrs. Claus as his treat, he retorted, "I'm not going to eat an old lady!". That's the kind of quote that gets us through the day!

December 21st: Mrs. Claus
Availability: Ferry Building, Octavia, Chestnut
Price: $2

P.S. Yes, I finally missed an advent calendar day yesterday. What finally did me in? The 1-2-3-4 punch of:
1.Tiny surprise birthday party before work for our fantastic assistant manager
2.glorious Chrislamikkah celebrations
3. Gingerbread house building competition- I mean party!
4. Miette stocking-stuffer holiday candy extravaganza at Jack London Square

To make up for my lapse, here's a new holiday feature: Wholesome Holiday Activity of the Day!
{Today's Wholesome Holiday Activity}: Watch "Emmett Otter's Jugband Christmas" It is the most darling, simple, and sweet of all the Muppet movies, and you'll really feel like you're in the snowy countryside. They nailed it, right down to that particular winter light. Get cozy, and enjoy.
