Blogmas Day 1: πŸŽ„ The Christmas countdown begins! πŸŽ„


Hello my friends!

So, it's the first of December today and all I can think is WHERE HAS THIS YEAR GONE?

In between reading, getting my assignments done and actually getting ready for Christmas, I'll be blogging every day (yep, every day) before the big day- 25th December- for Blogmas.

On the first day of Blogmas, I wanted to talk about advent calendars.

For many of us, getting an advent calendar is an essential part of Christmas celebrations- nothing says Christmas like the gift of chocolate every day, after all.

But, as the years have gone by, there has been more and more advent calendars WITHOUT chocolate on the shelves.

I've never had an advent calendar without chocolate in it and, seeing the price of some of them, I can understand why.

That being said, when I saw some people I know opening their fancy make-up/cosmetic filled advent calendars, I did feel a little jealous.

When it all comes down to it, though, a chocolate advent calendar will always be my favourite. It reminds me of previous Christmases as a child, when I was excited not only for Christmas but also at the fact that I was allowed to eat chocolate for breakfast!

So, what about you guys? Do you have an advent calendar this year? If so, which one?

(I have a Malteaser one, because you really can't go wrong with them and I absolutely LOVE the little reindeer chocolates they have at Christmas time)

I hope you enjoyed the first of my #Blogmas posts, more coming tomorrow!
