The waiting is the hardest part!

I love advent calendars, especially the chocolate ones. I love the anticipation of the holidays, and counting down to Christmas day is fun. It’s particularly special if there’s candy involved. My daughters loved opening a new window each morning and eating a small piece of chocolate with their breakfast. Here are some 2017 candy advent calendars.
