Tired with throwing a generic Disney or similar chocolate calendar in with the food shop, I was determined to find a glittery old-fashioned advent calendar with actual pictures like the ones I had as a kid and looked forward to opening year after year. I have looked for years and you just don't seem to find them in the shops anymore. Why on earth do we need a new one every year? As a kid the advent calendar came out of the loft with the other Xmas decorations and became part of the family tradition.
Very quick delivery and was a lovely old-fashioned calendar - has been packed away to use again next year, only thing I would say is a few of the pictures looked like they were European Christmas characters we didn't know (lots of gnome/dwarf type dudes!), but we found that quite fun :)
