Do you use Advent Calendars?
I use one every year, This year I bought a $39.99 'Classical Advent Calendar' from Walmart o.O
Last year was a $9.99 Candy Only advent calendar >.>

The Classic Advent Calendar is very large, It is 3 Feet x 3 Feet, And inside can be anything from Candy Canes to a stone,to a message to nothing.Today I opened December 1st and found a Blueberry Candycane ^_^ *And Im admiring it for the fact that Blueberry candycanes cost $5 for a pack of 12 O___O

My mom stopped buying those 2 years ago. ;_; Even though the chocolate is yucky (it's so gross to me now XD), it's still the joy of getting up in the morning and eating chocolate for breakfast that I miss. x3

;_; Now I wanna go out and buy one...

I've never uzed one before, and I don't think I know anyone who doez. But I'd love to uze one. Every year I mean to azk my mom about getting one, but I alwayz forget. Maybe next year we'll uze one =3

Neh, there'z no choice for me. =P

I don't think we've had one at my house since I was little. I can just barely remember having one hanging on the wall in the living room when I was little...

Which is why I still buy them. Umm...the chocolate in the morning part, not the yuckyness. I'm buying mine tomorrow in fact.

I haven't had one in years. I think we stopped when my mom got married to my stepdad. I don't think he's a fan of it. ;-;

They're so much fun to open and eat (although I was given a peice of one this year. Our german teacher was handing them out for about two dollars, and the candy wasn't exactly the greatest. ;-; ).
I should convice my mom to buy one. That would be so much fun. IT would sure bring back the memories. ^^

... what should I vote for?

I had them every year a few years earlier, those with jelly bears and chocolate in it, but I don't have a real one now. Only my gf gave me a greeting card with a "built-in calendar" with doors to scratch open... :D

I've never had an advent calendar. My brother has one every year... but I think when I first got one, I spat out the chocolate and wouldn't eat any more. So, my parents kinda got the hint. Now, I'm just not botherd anyways. :/

I absolutely love advent calendars and have one every year (always the cadbury classic one)..except this year :'(
Every shop i've been to has sold out of them, and just offers cadbury selection boxes instead (CD will know what im talking about)...i miss having one...

I am Catholic, but don't use an Advent calendar. :P

December 12th, 2004, 11:18 AM
Errr... No. My mom doesn't buy fun things. ;_; And they sound expensive. o.o;

December 12th, 2004, 11:40 AM
Only a couple of pounds/dollars ^^
They just have 24 (or 25, depends on the calendar) little cardboard windows to open. Inside the window can be either a picture or a piece of chocolate (depending again on which brand you buy)

They sound pretty cool. I've never had one, so I don't know much about them.

^ Yes, obviously I have them. I like the chocolate but it has a bad after taste. XD
