Questions about our heirloom quality Advent calendars are pouring in so I thought I would take a moment to answer some of them on our blog. I grew up with advent calendars. Every year right after Thanksgiving my mom would give me a small cardboard calendar with 24 perforated doors. Resisting the urge to drool, I would anxiously await December 1st, the day I got to open the first little door and savor the little morsel of chocolate behind it. Advent Calendars filled with chocolate were a part of Christmas for me like decorating the tree and making Christmas cookies; they were a tradition I will always cherish. For generations, families have marked the coming of Christmas in a variety of ways. From simple chalk markings to lighting candles, families have employed unique ways to enjoy the counting of the 24 days before Christmas.
Our Heirloom Advent Calendars are thoughtfully designed with 24 numbered doors behind which are a variety of our handcrafted artisan chocolates. Every day you can savor a different Christmas themed chocolate shape in a variety of milk, dark and white chocolates. These wooden calendars can be used year after year providing a tradition that your family is sure to treasure. We make it easy for you to continue the tradition year after year with refill packages, 24 individually wrapped chocolates ready for you to refill your calendar.
The big question people keep asking me is, “Christmas, already? It’s not even Halloween yet, why so early?” For those of us who really get in the Christmas spirit it’s never too early for Christmas but more importantly advent starts on the first of December. That gives us exactly 35 days to get all these wonderful Advent Calendars filled with delicious chocolate and heading your way.
