Christmas season is upon us. The Christmas tree is up, the lights are blinding and the smell of mulled wine dances down the halls of homes, offices and restaurants. And the pressure from society and people to take your love and appreciation and convert it into meaningless monetary objects that will somehow convey the value of your relationship with that person hovers over your head like a dark cloud. But, we at Namaste Vapes UK say screw that! Screw the capitalist manifestation into our society and treat yourself with a bit of DIY, herbs and make an advent calendar.
So What is An Advent Calendar?
An advent calendar for any Grinch's or anyone living under a rock is a special calendar used to count the days of Advent* in anticipation of Christmas. Advent calendars take the form of a large rectangle with windows. One for each day of December leading up to the 24th, Christmas Eve. The calendar doors open up to reveal a poem, image, joke, sweets, chocolate and in our case, herbs or a herb related item. *Advent is a season observed by Christians as a time of expectant waiting and preparation from the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas as well as the return of Jesus.
Now, that we all collectively have a better understanding of what advent calendars are, I’m sure we can all agree that a rectangle, cardboard box dressed in festive images and filled with small chocolate Santa's are cool. But, will the conventional advent calendar get you through the holiday season surrounded by your extended family? No, but our type of advent calendar will!
