      Do you still have an advent calendar during December to countdown to Christmas or are you someone who doesn't bother anymore?

      I myself used to have one every year up until I was about 16 and then I didn't bother anymore, always buy some every year still for my children but never bother for myself.

      What kind of advent calendar do you have every year?

      An advent calendar is a countdown to Christmas so to speak :) I have uploaded an image below to show you what they look like (this is not one of mine just an image I got from the internet)

      It has little windows that can be opened for each day from the 1st December - 25th December (sometimes some calendars will go beyond 25th December and will do one until New Year) and behind each window you will get a chocolate or you can also get advent calendars that offer something else behind each window.

      Lego currently have one in which for each window you open for each day you get another piece of lego towards a set :)
