Unique Advent Calendars Count Down to Christmas

TORONTO RETAILERS’ UNIQUE ADVENT CALENDARS OFFER MORE THAN JUST A CHOCOLATE A DAY

Unique Advent Calendars 2015 Toronto

A German tradition dating to the 19th century, advent calendars typically contain 24 “windows,” one for each day from December 1 to 24. A window is opened daily to reveal a surprise, making the long countdown to December 25 a little easier to endure. While the original versions contained Bible verses or prayers, modern renditions commonly contain chocolate or candy; some more unique advent calendars contain toys, trinkets and even more adult-oriented items. These contemporary calendars, featuring a range of fun, flavourful and functional gifts, are sure to make the entire holiday season special for everyone.
