I can't believe I had to order an Advent calendar on line that actually featured the Nativity rather than SpongeBob or the North Pole. When I found these calendars I was very pleased that they included a Bible verse with each window that opened--the Christmas story. I ordered calendars for my grandchildren, my nieces and nephews and even friends' children. They arrived in time and were well packed! I am delighted with the quality!

I vividly recall the joy of opening up the windows on my Advent calendar as a child, reading the bible verse, and eating the piece of chocolate. My Uncle was stationed in Germany and would send an Advent calendar to my family. I hope my children will have fond memories of their Advent calendars as well. These types of advent calendars can't be found in the stores so I am very thankful that you offer them!

Bought this for a family with 4 children. They love taking turns and counting down the days until Christmas. The Nativity scene helps to keep them focused on the REAL meaning of Christmas, but they really love the candy inside.

Thank you for providing an actual CHRISTmas item! :) The only advent calendars I could find in stores just had snowmen or santa or something like that on them- not anything with the actual meaning of Christmas on it! This advent calendar has great verses on the inside to help lead you through the Christmas story. The chocolate is pretty good. Its not a reusable item... just made of paper/cardboard with perforated 'doors'. Perfectly fine for its purpose and price!

I sent five of these to my university children and their friends for pre-Christmas gifts. It turned out to be a great success! They really liked the chocolate and the novelty of advent calendar- to enjoy during the end of the semester and exam week. I liked the daily Bible verses to prepare for the Christmas season. The only concern is that shipping is expensive.

This is a great advent calendar and I highly recommend it. It was very inexpensive, the chocolates inside are delicious, and I love reading the daily bible excerpts with my daughter as we open each flap.

My kids were so excited to receive these advent calenders. The chocolate is tasty and the nativity story is nice to read and explain to them. Will buy again next year!

We first looked for Advent paper calendars in our local stores. Most of what we found were $12-20, non-religious (i.e. Spongebob)and no candy included.

I found this one on Amazon for around $6 in pre-holiday 2013 and added it to an existing order to take advantage of the free shipping. (Amazon's current price is around $1 higher than ordering direct from Vermont Christmas Company). Chocolate can be a risk, however, the chocolates were fresh and a plastic backpiece kept them aligned to the right doors. I've since thrown out the packaging, however, I thought ours said it was made in the US.

The one we received had 24 numbered doors on it. Inside each door was a biblical verse and a piece of chocolate around the size of a nickel. The biblical verses were not particularly kid-friendly so I used it as more of a prompt for what to talk to my kids about on that day. The chocolates were in different shapes and just perfect for the kids. I wasn't keen on the flavor profile of this particular milk chocolate; however, my kids absolutely loved it.

If the plastic mold holding the chocolate was sturdier, I would've tried to reuse it to make our own chocolate since the pieces were a good size.

I would order this again. Depending on what you're looking to spend, I also noticed that Vermont Christmas Company does some nice looking fabric, wooden and wood-magnet advent calendars in addition to other items. Only some of their items appear to be available on Amazon at this time.

I purchased this to add excitement and anticipation to Christmas. Its one of the more attractive manger scenes out there as far as advent calendars go. It arrived quickly and in great shape. I popped out the number 1 door and ate the first chocolate early so I could review this product better. It was satisfactory, not Swiss chocolate which is the best in the world and not that cheap crud you get in candy boxxes from drugstores with no flavor.

The numbers on the calendar aren't super easy to find, that will help add interest for kids and the tabs are relatively easy to open. But be warned...chocolates in fun little doors just begging to be opened are a huge draw for kids. I ransacked my family's advent calendar when I was little because it was there where I could reach it and it was just too tempting. I have mine hanging high so my visiting neices and nephews don't get the same idea.

Good buy overall. Such a fun thing for families and even fun for personal use.

Each of the Christmas Advent calendars made by Vermont contains the same placement and shapes of chocolate, as well as the same Scripture verse printed on the inside of each door. Vermont makes these and only changes the picture, so they get the same review on each of them from me. If you only get one, the price is reasonable and the chocolate is tasty. If you are getting multiples, the pictures hold up well to grubby fingers. Even a 3-year-old can open these doors- thankfully, it takes enough effort on his part that I can catch him trying to sneak tomorrow's chocolate today (at 3, he doesn't know that sound travels, and he has not yet learned to post a look-out.) Having the Christmas story inside each door, one verse at a time, is a nice touch, too.
