Counting down to Christmas

First Christmassy post of the year! And I know for some of you November is still too early and you don’t want to hear about it but I’m afraid I love Christmas and I’m pretty proud of myself for resisting the urge to mention it in September. And in my defence advent calendars need to be thought about before December anyway ūüėÄ

An advent calendar is used to count down the days in anticipation of Christmas, starting on the 1st December and usually ending on the 24th December. In the UK they are very popular, particularly the ones that contain chocolate and it is very common to find them in every supermarket for as little as a couple of pounds.
But I wanted to see what other varieties are available online and on the highstreet that offer something a little different or are a bit more luxurious, I particularly like the ones that you fill yourself as they can be used again and again each year.

Please leave a comment and let me know how you celebrate the count down to Christmas in your country.
