Commencing The Christmas Countdown

Advent calendars are a fun Christmas tradition that adds to the already-magical feel of the holidays. In recent years, these Christmas countdowns have really taken off, with focuses on everything from beauty, chocolate, and music to whiskey and wine — and pretty much everything in between. We've rounded up some of our favorites this year and you can pretty much bet there's something on this list that fits right in with your family's or household's interests and personality. Hurry and pick one up before the countdown begins on Dec. 1.
