When I was a kid my mom always gave people advent candles for Christmas. They were the hit of the neighborhood. Not too many people in the USA celebrated the advent back then, though I think more do now. Since I’ve been in Switzerland I have learned a lot more about the advent and tried to get into the “advent” spirit. I was going to try to make one for my daughter this year but I just didn’t have the time. So, she got a chocolate advent calendar that her babysitter bought her. Next year though, I am making one or both of these! Via Minieco and Snug Online.
