Advent Calendars for the Christmas Season


Christmas is only 49 days away, so why not get a headstart on planning? Forgo the paper and digital calendars and count down with something more festive — advent calendars.


Traditionally more popular in Europe, advent calendars are calendars with flaps or doors covering up each “window” leading up to Christmas day. For each day, the calendar window flaps are opened to reveal an image, chocolates or small gifts to mark the day.


Start December with these five advent calendars that provide a touch of luxury with each day leading to Christmas.

What do Frosty the Snowman and DPM have in common?

We’ll both be participating in the Children’s Medical Center Holiday Parade this Saturday! The Ebby Halliday Family of Companies, including Dave Perry-Miller & Associates, are proud to again serve as a sponsor of the annual Children’s Medical Center Holiday Parade which will take place this Saturday, December 4th at 10 am through the streets of Downtown Dallas!

According to Ebby’s Blog, “This parade has become a holiday tradition for hundreds of thousands of families and this year it will be lead by recording artist David Archuleta and five patients of Children’s who will serve as Grand Marshals. In addition, there will be 11 giant inflatable balloons, 5 floats, 9 marching bands, 1,000 girls from drill teams across the state, speciality units, celebrities and children’s characters such as The Grinch, Curious George and more!” Proceeds benefit the Child Life Department at Children’s Medical Center.

Be sure to watch for the giant inflatable Frosty the Snowman balloon, which will be carried by Sales Associates from each of the 30 offices of the Ebby Halliday Family of Companies. The parade is free for the public to attend, but be sure to arrive early to find a great spot – learn more here. You may also purchase reserved bleacher seating here.
