Its the 1st of December, time to start your advent calendars! Unless of course your dead inside and don't like happiness.

I went the extra mile and bought myself a LEGO City advent calendar, each day brings a new LEGO build rather than some shitty chocolate.

I have a chocolate calender. That LEGO think seems really cool except when you have to put all those little things somewhere.

You just reminded me I need to get an advent calendar.

Can't find any over here with decent chocolate in it. It's all Hershey's bollocks. :(

Oh hell yeah. I have to visit my grandmother soon. I may be 20 years old, but I just feel like there is no christmas unless grandma gives me a chocolate calendar :)

Never had an Advent calendar of any sort :/

Whenever i get an advent calendar I just eat/open up everything in like 3 days.

WTF is an advent calendar? The only calendar I ever need is my iCloud calendar on my iPhone and Mac....so....

Christmas calendar...ok....don't care...I'll be working through Christmas, certainly not counting down to that.

Exactly. I have zero self restraint. I'd just gobble up everything.

My Mum got me a chocolate Gruffalo one... today I had a picture of some berries.

I love Advent Calendars every year, I will never stop getting them. I am jealous of your lego one though.

what the fuck is this shit.

Wait. You guys' get food in yours? How does that even work? Ours were always just pictures that had each date covering some secret little thingy. Had to play where's Waldo for every day.

Haven't had one of those since I was a wee lad, though.

Never heard of it so I think its fair to say that I wont be opening one.

It cost me like £30, the Lego builds are not going to be that great but it's just kind of better than chocolate. Today I got a fireman mini fig, but get this, the fireman came with two extra pieces. Madness!

I'll be working so fuck Christmas.

#19 Posted by JasonR86 (9587 posts) -

I can barely remember to do basic things during my day let alone required things that I have to do by a certain time. If I had an advent calender it would just fucking fall apart.

It's been years since I last had an Advent calendar, but I used to love getting those little pieces of chocolate.

Never heard of a LEGO Advent calendar...that sounds awesome!

#21 Posted by Levio (1782 posts) -

I don't believe in the Advent. Though I do believe in calendars, so I'm kind of on the fence here...

#22 Posted by Kerned (1169 posts) -

@Levio: I'm an agnostic non-Christian, but I enjoy advent calendars and other Christmas traditions simply because they are fun.

Advent calenders are fucking awesome, Santa won't be visiting you two this year.

Of course he won't. I killed him three years ago.

Why are you so saddened? I removed a terrible threat from the Earth. Satan Claus no longer has any influence over you! YOU ARE NOW FREE!

#27 Posted by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

@Hizang: They still do those LEGO calendars? I had them for two or three years when I was crazy into lego. That is amazing.

It seems you are still bound by his greed. Even after these years have passed, you will not let go of your false idol.

I wish I knew what you were talking about, but I've been dead inside for almost 5 years now.

There great, there is a LEGO city one and a LEGO Star Wars one, the LEGO Star Wars one has a Father Christmas version of Darth Maul.

Man, you've made me realise that I don't even have an advent calender yet.

#35 Posted by natedawg_kz (234 posts) -
