I recently saw a cheese advent calendar in a supermarket but dismissed this instantly as ridiculous because it needs to be in the refrigerator and we all know, advent calendars sit on the mantelpiece or somewhere in the hall. What sane human would eat a piece of warm cheese that has sat above the radiator for a few weeks? Not me!
I have also heard tell of a pork scratching advent calendar which sounds good in theory. I have yet to see it executed so I am withholding judgement. I fear the packets will be micro-morsels.
We shall not discuss the hideous brick system advent calendars that cost £25 EACH! I love my child dearly but he can go whistle for an advent calendar costing as much as that. Teenage girls who follow the vlogger Zoella can also do one if they think they are getting a £60 advent calendar that only has 12 doors!!!!! Just 12... ZOELLA, ADVENT IS THE 24 DAYS LEADING UP TO CHRISTMAS - YOU NUMPTY.
No, the best advent
calendar I have seen so far is the Dadvent calendar idea from some guy on
YouTube. He went out and bought a catering pack of Scampi flavour fries... 24 on
a card, just like you see at the pub. The perfect number for advent, packaged
in a simple, eco-friendly way and containing proper sized packets of scampi
flavour snacks... I have seen the future and for once the chaps are right, Dadvent is
where it's at.
