Advent calendars are a lot of fun.
There's just something about them that brings back that sense of childlike wonder, as you open up a new square every day and find a little present. Maybe you'll get a mediocre piece of chocolate, maybe a tiny useless trinket. Whatever it is, the fun of getting a mysterious gift is always exciting, even if you have a lousy calendar.
But as adults, holidays can be a bit more stressful. You might have kids, you might have relatives coming over for Christmas. Or you might just be wondering how you'll make it through December when you have gifts to buy and bills to pay. Hey, it happens.
That's exactly why all holiday decorations should somehow involve booze.
Fortunately for all of us, Aldi has our backs and will be releasing a wine advent calendar for the 2017 holiday season. And we should all be very grateful for such a wonderful gift.
The discount grocery chain's new product will include 24 mini bottles of wine, which add up to a little more than six full-sized bottles' worth of red, white, rose and sparkling wines for the 24 days of advent, reports Refinery29. For $67, it isn't too terrible of a price.
The calendar will include bottles from brands that include JP Chenet and Calvet, notes The Sun. Most of the wine will be French, although there will be some Spanish and Italian sparkling ones.
Sadly, it seems that Aldi is only releasing the boozy calendar in the U.K. this year, but I'm hoping that it is a smash hit and soon makes its way over to the U.S. by next year's holiday season.
The revolutionary calendar will come out on Nov. 1, so make sure you're ready! If you're going to be in the U.K. at that time, you'll want to run to your local Aldi and pick one up ASAP.
