‘Win It’ Wednesday: Christmas Advent Calendar

What’s the only thing better than the most soyous time of year? Vegan chocolate. Every day.

This year, we’ve found a gift that really does keep on giving. With the Advent calendar from Amanda’s Own Confections, each day of December offers a new door and a small wonder behind it: a piece of scrumptious, cruelty-free chocolate. And it culminates in the best Christmas miracle ever: a big dairy-free chocolate Santa.

You can win the sweetest calendar ever—simply post a comment with your funniest holiday greeting.

We’ve got two Advent calendars to give away to the commenters who make us laugh the hardest. The contest ends on November 23, 2009, and we’ll pick the winner on November 25, 2009. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting. Good luck!

    Not sure why my post wasn’t added the other day when I submitted it the first time. “Nothing says Christmas like presents under the tree and an animal carcass centerpiece on the table. Happy Vegan Holidays!” “After finding out that gelatin was made from ground up animal bones and cartilage Santa was glad his belly jiggled like a bowl full of pectin containing jelly. Merry Vegan Christmas!”

  • Jonathan says:

    Hohoho who’s in town? Why it’s Santa and he’s trimmed down! He’s cut out the meat the fish the dairy cause it’s Santa and he shouldn’t be scary! Wouldn’t it be wise to see him in the skies without those huge thighs oh my! So take his advice don’t think twice cause eating meat is not so nice!

  • Shana says:

    Happy snappy sappy zappy not crappy holidays! I know I’m not really funny but I actually say this to people.

  • David says:

    I saw this on a card and it made me laugh adapted for Christmas The Dalai Lama opens a christmas present from his Tibetan monk friends. He looks in the box and see’s NOTHING… “Nothing! That’s what I’ve always wanted!” Exclaimed the Dalai Lama with a huge grin on his face Happy Holidays!

    I have worked at Malleys Chocolates very popular candy store in Northeast Ohio that ships worldwide for over 10 years! I get several requests for vegan chocolates by customers. How about we all go on and send Mr. Malley a message about why it is important to sell vegan chocolate? Wouldn’t it also be a good option for those who are lactose intolerant?

  • Melissa Hall says:

    My holiday cards this year feature a picture of my bunny Professor Cadbury McTwinklenose in a santa hat. It’s hilarious!

    Santa got run over by a reindeer… for making little kids think its okay to mush around innocent animals all night just to amuse them.

  • Krista says:

    Santa has gone cruelty free! He’s set the reindeer free you see! This year he’s riding a Honda Valkerie! Bigger than the biggest Harley Yet as quiet as a mouse You won’t even know When he’s arrived at your house! So sleep pretty babies and dream without fear Santa is cruelty free this year! Merry Christmas.
