A Diamine Inkvent calendar? “What is that?” I asked Chuck Littlefield, the sales representative for Diamine Inks. He was just as excited as I was to have a “grown up” version of this childhood tradition. And what better way than with the Diamine Inkvent Calendar giving tiny gifts each day?
With both of my parents being born and raised in Germany, we did things a little differently around Christmas time than I do now with my own children. For example, during Advent, I would sing German Christmas songs with my family on each of the four Sunday nights of Advent. Not being able to sing, this tradition did not last long. Also, we did not open presents Christmas morning as most do in the United States. Instead, my dad would take my sisters and I out for a walk while my mother helped Chris Kringle (Santa Claus) set things up on Christmas Eve.
One of the things we enjoyed as kids was the Advent Calendar. Every morning, one of us was able to open a little window on the calendar. This was every day leading up to Christmas Eve. We got so excited to just open small windows. Well, things have changed in the last 50 years, and for the better with this Diamine Inkvent Calendar. Now when you open that little window, rather than just a small picture like I got, you’ll get one of 24 bottles of 7mL of unique ink every day for the 1st to the 24. The grand prize on Christmas day is another color, but this time a 30ml bottle. The Diamine Invent calendar 2019 is a fun way to enjoy the season. There’s lots of opportunities to write Christmas cards to friends and family with a different color of Diamine ink for the entire month of December.
Yes, I said December because you can’t cheat and open them early. Bertram’s Inkwell has plenty of the Diamine Invent calendar in stock and ready for immediate shipment. You want to order soon, so your Advent Calendar will be in your kitchen (like mine as a kid) and be prepared to open that special surprise every morning in December leading up to Christmas day.
