With December quickly approaching, the countdown to Christmas is about to officially begin. One popular way to mark the time is with an advent calendar, in which each day reveals a new trinket until you reach December 25. Typically, these small items are candy or toys. But recently, companies have been introducing contemporary advent calendars that are a twist on tradition.
You'd expect a conventional advent calendar to include imagery of Christmas trees, holly, and snowmen. The Harry Potter calendar, however, strays from holiday-themed illustrations by featuring a portrait of Hogwarts that conceals 24 sweet morsels from the Wizarding World. Each day you'll dig into the likes of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, Gummy Slugs, Dolly Mix, and more. Yum!
