BWC #25 Advent Calendar

Sharon managed to find her way into Starvation Creek while taking on Denitza's BWC #23 Page Maps Challenge.

Everyone, but Sharon, are all still tied up making their lists for her BWC #24 Grocery List, All Tied Up challenge, while I'm checking mine twice. Let's see what Sharon's checked off her list now that she's tied up her loose ends:

In the meantime, the lists (and the challenges) go on. The inspiration for this challenge comes from the myriads of advent calendar variations that have been inspired by the Advent calendar.

Scraft your ?OM Holiday Top 25 response. This may come in the form of a layout, actual calendar, album--any way the Holiday spirit fills you.

In keeping with the advent theme, your work must include all 25 numbers and submitted by December 25.*

TRAKkers: Extra points for memberzz who reveal pieces behind "windows", but not required.

*Special note: The due date for this challenge occurs after the final BWC of the year on December 20, which will be posted by Michelle.

?OM Holiday Top 25

What's in your Holiday Top 25? This can be a list of songs, movies, books, gifts (given and/or received), food and drinks, symbols, events, memories, or a combination of all of these AS LONG AS they are centered around the Holidays and winter. On the flipside, this list can also be a Holiday Worst 25.

Please title your post, then rank and list your entries beginning with #25 and ending with #1 as your favorite entry.

Here's a sample ready-made list from Moviefone that you can cut and paste into your own post:
