When I was a kid, a chocolate advent calendar was PEAK excitement. We usually got just the plain ones that rewarded us with a bible verse or maybe a line from a poem, but sometimes we got that weird waxy chocolate and we were thrilled. These days, advent calendars are available for everyone in the family, for every interest and fandom. We end up having three or four different ways to track the countdown, because we each want our own special thing for each day! Here are some of our favorites that we've seen this year; don't forget to order early, because a lot of these will sell out!

  1. Hi! Here via one of the NaBloPoMo communities, though I can’t think of which one right offhand. I like the idea of the wine Advent Calendar – I might be able to do something like that with tiny liquor bottles. Though wine works, too!

    Just read your about page – I hate that I never got to see or participate in a performance of Listen To Your Mother. Two of my online friends were actually pretty involved with their respective local productions. We never even had one in my town.
