2020’s been a long old year, and we all feel a bit tired and jaded in this, what feels like the 274th day of March. So I’ll confess that the thought of a month of evenings staying up until midnight to post Chemistry Advent instalment didn’t fill me with wild enthusiasm. Having run a Chemistry Advent for the past 6 years, this year I’ve decided to take a break of sorts.
December is just about upon us, which means it’s time for another year of the Chemistry advent calendar! After several years of looking at the chemistry behind Christmas festivities, I’ve decided to do something slightly different (but hopefully equally entertaining) this year.
It’s the start of December, which means you’ve probably already cracked open the chocolate advent calendar if you celebrate Christmas. Whether you do or not, the Compound Interest Chemistry Advent is back for its fourth year and is a great way to get your daily chemistry fix!
Many of you have probably already been following along with this year’s Chemistry Advent. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, it’s an eye-opener to some of the festive chemistry that’s around us at this time of year. If you’ve not been keeping up with the posts, there’s still time to catch up for the last few days – head over to the calendar here! All of the posts are free to download as PDFs too, so you can print them out and use them to share some festive chemistry with your family or friends.
