Every year my parents gave me an advent calendar, and I'd count down the days until Christmas (while eating chocolate). Sometimes I could barely keep myself from peeking at the day ahead to see what goodie was inside. I tried this with my kids last year, and frankly, they are too young to have chocolate every day. Or maybe I'm too old. Anyways, I did a little search on advents... here are a few favorites I found — with, and without treats.
