Há no novo vida nova

    Há no novo vida nova (In new there's new life) is the subject
    of a contest promoted by ESAD to commemorate Christmas time.

    The subject leads us to the idea that we can find new life in
    something  new so it seemed a good idea exploring an existing object,
    keeping its appearance, but turning its concept to something new.
    Since this is a Christmas and New Year's contest, it also could be a good
    idea to mix a Christmas object with a New Year's idea.
    Having in mind all of the premises described above, the object that was
    chosen was the Advent Calendar - related to Christmas - but, instead of
    chocolats, we have an objective or a "mission" for each day (e.g. smile to the
    other people in traffic) - when we celebrating the New Year, we often point
    objectives to achieve during the new year. This way, the calendar tries to
    encourage people to do little actions that can make them happier during that day.
    Below, you can check the list of 24 daily objectives:
    1. Set up the Christmas tree with the family
    2. Adopt a pet
    3. Take my partner to the promised restaurant
    4. Do not smoke during all day
    5. Smile to the waiter at the café
    6. Go to a theatre play with the family
    7. Prepare a session of board games to the friends
    8. Wake up early, prepare the breakfast and take it to my partner in bed
    9. Say "hello" and "thank you" to people
    10. Tell a joke to the neighbour in the elevator
    11. Tell my kids how much I love them
    12. Reserve the promised trip
    13. Go to a concert with the family
    14. Leave home with family and friends with no destiny neither returning hour 
    15. Smile to the other people in the traffic
    16. Prepare a surprising dinner to my partner
    17. Read an enchanted story to my kids
    18. Leave a post-it with a positive message to my work partner
    19. Buy the promised book
    20. Walk in the rain with no fear
    21. Cook a chocolat cake with my kids
    22. Spend the morning wearing pyjamas, in front of the fireplace, watching to a movie with the family
    23. Leave Christmas' postcards in the neighbours, family and friends' mailbox
    24. Make all these objectives a habit in 2014
    This proposal was the winner! :)
