As you start the countdown to Christmas, advent calendars can help get you in the mood to celebrate. Even if you don’t observe Christmas, they can be a great way to treat yourself during the holiday season. (Think of it as a countdown to the new year instead.) Many advent calendars contain chocolates made with cow’s milk, which is stolen from mother cows who are subjected to the dairy industry’s cruel practices. Keep mother cows and their babies together by choosing dairy-free goodies to celebrate the season.
These vegan advent calendars will help you get into the Christmas spirit:
