I will have to inform my mom to purchase me one this year. I won't return home from school until the 13th, but I love waking up to celebrate a piece of chocolate and stroking another day off prior to Christmas. It's a great feeling. The one I usually get is blue and has Santa standing and smiling while holding his sack full of presents with excited children around him. I've had the same one almost every year since I was about 9 (15 years now) and it never gets old.

We usually end up getting whatever one we can find because we usually have a difficult time finding them at all...but we do manage to get our hands on one every year. Sometimes the chocolate is great, sometimes it's barely edible...but it's always fun!

I got my first advent calander in third grade, and i still use it (ninth grade) Ours has boxes numbered 1 to 25 and attatched to it is a wooden tree with 25 knobs on it. Each box contains a little candy (like a miniture hershey bar or a Kiss) and a little wooden ornament that you hang on the tree. It's still fun coming down every morning starting Dec. 1st and seeing what ornament the box has in store for me that day...

It's making me hungry just thinking about chocolate!
Because i'm trying to watch my figure I don't have an advent calendar for myself but its tradition in my family for all the kids to have one each. I have already purchased one for my boy. He is wrestling mad at the moment and I managed to find him a World Wrestling advent calender for 4 dollars. My niece and nephews get 2 each, they have one at home and one here because I live with my mum (their nana).

Something else I do which is similar to an advent calendar I guess, is the 12 days of Christmas.
I buy 12 little presents... usually small for eg. a pack of pencils, a matchbox car, a pair of wrestling jocks or a chocolate and I wrap them all individually. I can usually pick things up rather cheap, even a sheet of stickers in a little box. I usually purchase these all throughout the year if I see bargains so that it doesnt become expensive. The presents then become Jak's Stocking Stuffers. Every second day leading up to Christmas he gets a gift, (usually after dinner each night)... and he has 30 seconds only to feel the packaging and shake and guess what it is and it goes straight into the sack. On Christmas morning him and I have even more fun discovering what the present really is and usually results in giggles.

Now you have all got me craving chocolate and thankfully there is none in the house!

I've already bought our Advent Calendars for this year. DD8 has both a Hanna Montanna and HSM Advent Calander. I've went for a Cadbury's one this year. We also pick up some really good bargains during the first week of December. We bought a Doctor Who one last year for 13 pence! Although I think I got as much fun out of that as my DD8! Although I also have Advent Trees that I use every year,you open a drawer which contains a little ornament and then hang it on the tree. Last year I also made an Advent Garland. I just LOVE counting down the days!

We have a regular house advent calendar that I bought from LLBean. I fill it with little presents and I have it on a schedule who gets to pick what day. I purposely assign each kid a specific day based on the present I put inside! I fill it with their favorite candy,sometimes a $5 gift card to the movies or our local ice cream place. It's really a fun tradition!

I get one every year as a tradition, but the last few years the chocolate in them has been awful! My fiance will not eat bad chocolate, so he doesn't do the advent with me

So this year, I might see if Hershey or some other reputable chocolate company has an advent calander out
