For so many adults, the beauty of the holiday season becomes a stressful, harried experience. Between buying Christmas presents and organizing social commitments, what should be a fun time of year winds up flying by.
So this year, we say, get back to basics — or at least, the kind of countdown that's truly enjoyable. Advent calendars, which were originally created with Bible verses or scriptures to help Christians anticipate the Nativity of Jesus on Dec. 25, have now become almost secular in nature, with options ranging from chocolates to tequila.
We gathered together some of our favourite options available this year — let us know if there's another great one we missed out on.
