As we approach the holiday season, the countdown to Christmas begins! There is no better way to do it than with chocolate. Luckily for us, the tradition of advent calendars filled with chocolate and treats was created.

Advent Calendars History: Advent calendars help us count down the days until Christmas with small treats revealed on each day. Traditionally calendars would hold rectangular cards or boxes that can be hung on the wall on each day of Advent which always falls between the 27th of November and December 3rd and ends on Christmas Eve on the 24th of December.

As we start the countdown we take a look at the best chocolate Advent calendars this year.
