    I've never quite understood what an advent calendar is, I must admit.

    Really? Something to open every day up until Christmas - these days typically full of crap hersheys type chocolate.

    well before the chocolate company's took it over ( and not just chocolate company's )

    the advent calendar was latin for the coming ...supposedly this was Jesus coming in to the world and Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas..

    one of the reason I hate Christmas the true means is gone and it's just full of greed .gluttony , selfishness
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    That's really all it is? There's no, like, special thing about them? I first heard about them in Bad Santa, but I didn't know they were a real thing.

    Ah, that makes sense. Very different from the one my friend sent me, which has naked ladies in it.
