Advent Calendars


#1

Has this been done already?

Got my eye on one but it’s £40 which is a bit steep.


#2

is it a beer one


#3

of course not, I’m not that guy.


#4

I’m gonna get the Zoella one


#5

Got my dearest the Snafflepig pork scratchings one (there is also a socks one I was tempted to buy him), and bought myself the M&S beauty one. had my finger hovering over the liberty one about ten times in the last week, but I think I have enough already.

Lots of decent looking beer and gin ones this year.


#6

I think advent calendars should really just be some kind of chocolate.


#7

You’re looking at 40 quid chocolate calendars mate? I don’t even know you any more!!!


#8

Feast your eyes on this monster


#9

Chocolates eh?
When I was in my early years my sister and I had an advent calendar which was a picture of a crib scene and we opened a window each day which revealed a picture of a shepherd, a king, an animal etc. The 24th and final one was a set of double doors which revealed a picture of the Baby Jeezus in his manger. We re-used the same calendar every year. It was unbelievably exciting.

#11

:confused: have you made that at home?


#12

for 40 bar? kin hell.


#13

I’ll make you at home mate.


#14

Gf’s mum got me a Dairy Milk one. I don’t want it, so more for her.


#15

That was a nice gesture by her.


#16

I won one in a pub panto recently and in a fit of gluttony, ate the doors for 8th, 9th, and 23rd, but then realised I should probably actually use it properly. Not looking forward to that two-day streak of no chocolate


#17

I agree, except she forgot that I’m bereft of joy.


#18

Already made one. Half the chocolates didn’t fit in the boxes so I had to eat them :woman_shrugging:


#19

a different homophobic tweet behind every door?


#20

I’ve got to be honest, my entire knowledge of the Zoella Advent Calendar scandal is just that there is a scandal. I don’t actually have a single clue what is going on with her, her tweets, her advent calendars or any aspect of her life really.
