Anyone doing advent calendars?, We've got 4 on the go and a playmobile one, H.P was a gift? to my Wife (She wants to do it) and I've got a half \half of 2017\2018 plus S.W 2018 and this year's city one ,they're not worth the prices initially but 21Euro and under is acceptable. The previous calendars make up my winter scene....and it's obviously pretty bleak

Have a Harry Potter one for the kids that they take it in turns to open a city one for myself. First year I’ve got to open one!

My 8 year old is doing the City one.
My 4 year old is doing the Friends one from last year. (I got it on sale for about €12).  She knows no different so happy days!
I have the HP one but haven’t started it yet!  My 8 year old is fairly unhappy with the City one as there’s not much building so far. On the other hand last years Friends one is really good (decorations for the tree like rocking reindeer, fireside, love heart).

The more I get them the less impressed I'm getting but I guess for the size and scale there's not much can be done. We're using last year's S.W and city. The fun value is opening the surprise unless you've seen them online before.
