September 1st means one thing and one thing only: summer is over. Sure, Labor Day hasn’t officially happened yet, but the weekend before Labor Day feels like the worst Sunday of the year. You spend the whole weekend knowing that summer is over and it is time for fall. But, for those of us who love fall and winter, this is a time to celebrate.

Some people are already buying their Halloween decorations and candy even though the holiday is about 60 days away. You might think it is too early for Halloween still, but for Yankee Candle, it isn’t too early to prepare for Christmas.

If you have a lot of shopping to get done for Christmas, it is always smarter to start shopping early, so you avoid dropping hundreds to thousands of dollars in December. If you want to prepare for Christmas, you’re going to need one of Yankee Candle’s Advent calendars. They come in three festive versions, so there is one for any Christmas mood.

Now, if you are unfamiliar with Advent calendars, or perhaps never called them that growing up, they are calendars that countdown each day in Advent, which is the time leading up to Christmas. The calendar has 24 days on it, every day in December through Christmas Eve. Typically, Advent calendars have little doors or flaps that you can pull down to reveal a tiny gift waiting inside. As a kid, the best kind of Advent calendar to get was a chocolate one.

If you’re looking to get an Advent calendar for the 2018 holiday season, Yankee Candle offers 3 different versions. Good Housekeeping UK unveiled the news that Yankee Candle had released their Advent lineup.
