Advent Calendars are meant to be enjoyed in December... one day at a time. The anticipation and discovery of what's behind each date is where the enjoyment lies. Since this calendar is almost 3 years old, there's no way you could appreciate the excitement the way we did back then. But maybe I can improvise...
Back then, my daily updates always listed the artist of the day and linked directly to the Calendar page. That way you could find the specific date and open up the new collage. But since the calendar is already over... years over, lol... where's the excitement, the anticipation, and the enjoyment of the Calendar itself if all you have to do is go to the now completed calendar page and open up each and every collage? Yeah, it's easy... it's simple... but you'd never know who we were (if you're a new phile) or relive the memories if you're an old one.
So when I decided to give the Calendars their own space online, I thought I'd try and make it possible for you to experience them the way we did. The 2013 Advent Calendar was a little different. It was opened up to multiple fandoms, not just the X-Files. I also didn't create an actual calendar page... the collages were linked from the update pages only. So I've recoded the pages showing the updates in chronological order for you with a Completed Calendar linked at the end.
Only 11 dedicated and talented artists participated in 2013, the lowest number in the history of the calendars. Maybe the writing was on the wall... how many people visited is a complete mystery. I can't recreate the taggie cuz it's long gone, but maybe you'll recognize some names while reading the updates, or remember a collage or two that you've seen before. If you've never been here before, then you're in for a real treat!
Ready? Then come with me to The 2013 X-Files Advent Calendar. Enjoy!
