 Welcome to Mr Monkey's 2017 Advent Calendar! 

It works pretty much like a real advent calendar; run your mouse inside the little squares on the picture to check the date the picture is for, then click to reveal the picture. Of course, pictures won't be revealed before the right day (so it's not that like a real advent calendar).

Click on the picture a second time to close it, purely for the experience of opening it again.

Many pictures are animated; all but one of these do not loop. To repeat an animation click on it to close the picture, then click again to re-open it.

Some animations are paired, and opening one will cause another already open animation to run again.

There are eight pictures for Christmas Day, which will appear at different times on the 25th. The full set can be seen by repeated clicking on Boxing Day and the rest of the month.

To completely reset the calendar and close all the squares properly, click the 'Delete cookie' below, and use F5 (or your browser's equivalent) to refresh the page.

This page uses cookies to remember how you left the calendar on your last visit. The cookies should expire at the end of December at the latest.

Note: Mr Monkey has noticed that the animations loop infinitely when the calendar is viewed with Chrome on Mr Rik's Moto G Android phone, and suggests using a different browser, such as Firefox, if you encounter such an unintended feature.

 Season's Greetings from Mr Orange Monkey
