However, the latest one may just be the strangest advent calendar yet, and we sort of love it.
Annem Hobson, a food blogger from London, has invented a cheese advent calendar… and has become our ultimate hero as a result.
Each day contains a delicious piece of cheese, from cheddar to brie!
The kicker is that Annem won't be ready to distribute these amazing calendars until 2017, so we'll have to wait.
You can register your interest over on cheeseadventcalendar.com, where you'll get updates on Annems cheesy progress.
However, if you simply cannot wait until next year, why not make your own?
Annem posted instructions on her blog, so we can all have our very own cheese-filled calendar.
Thanks BRIE to God.
