This is something that I am sure we have back at home in the USA somewhere, but I have yet to see it. In France I found this beer advent calendar with different beer counting your way to the festivities. In England, I found a gin advent calendar with 24 different, lovely, little airplane bottles of gin from all over the country for the true alcoholic in your family. Now, all I need is some sort of small bottle version of the champagne advent calendar and they would have me hooked for the 24 days. Much better than cheap chocolate.
