Finally, someone came up with an adult version of an advent calendar for Christmas.

I remember every year as a kid, my Mom would buy me an advent calendar.

If you're not familiar with advent calendars, they are basically a way for kids to countdown the days until Christmas. It does have a much deeper meeting, but I'm just trying to keep it simple.

It's usually a Christmas themed picture with little doors you can open throughout. They are all numbered one through twenty-four. That represents December 1st until the 24th. The doors open and there is a different Christmas themed picture inside for each day.

One year, I was really lucky and my Mom got me one that gave you a piece of candy each day.

Of course, this is a great idea for children. Parents not so much.

Finally, someone has come up with an advent calendar for people twenty-one and older.

According to,

"It's time to call attention to the new and improved way to celebrate the daily countdown: with boozy Advent calendars that allow you to sip your way to the holiday."

There are ones you can go out and buy, but the best part is you can totally do this yourself. Go out and get a case of beer and you're set to go. You could also do shots, a glass of wine, or your favorite mixed drink. The possibilities are endless.

The best part of this whole concept is you're having a drink to count down the holidays, so it's all good. Instead of drinking to just get drunk.

If you try it, please let us know how it goes.
