Mates, I don’t know about you, but one of the highlights of being a kid at Christmas was plucking a little choccie out of that sweet, sweet advent calendar in the 24 days leading up to the big fat guy’s appearance.

But sadly, as I got older, I stopped indulging in the tradition (read: my parents stopped buying me chocolate advent calendars). But this year, that’s all about to change. This year I’m treating myself and sipping my way through this wine advent calendar from the good people over at Laithwaites.
