11 Advent Calendars to get ready for Christmas

The countdown for Christmas will start soon!

If you own a business and/or are crazy about Christmas, the countdown probably already started the day after Halloween. When I was a kid, my mother bought me a few times the advent calendar with chocolates included. The chocolate was not great and everything was eaten way before Christmas anyway. Now you can buy advent calendars with cosmetics, candles, luxurious chocolate or even gin. You can also make your own or buy an empty one you can use for years and fill the boxes with anything you wish! Let’s have a look at the 10 Advent Calendars you can have this year!
