So, Boozy Advent Calendars Are A Thing And I Might Actually Survive The Holidays This Year

The holidays are supposed to be a cheerful time filled with peace, togetherness, and pie (lots of pie). However, sometimes the togetherness aspect can be less than peaceful if you have a family that doesn't always focus on cheer but instead focuses on things like why you haven't gotten married yet or how many kids you think you'll have or what happened to that nice guy you brought around three Thanksgivings ago. Ugh. Hence why I'm usually pretty drunk at holiday gatherings.

This year, I discovered probably one of the most genius holiday inventions to ever exist—an advent calendar filled with booze. It's like the ones we used to have as kids except the chocolate is replaced with tiny airplane bottles of gin, tequila, or whatever else your heart desires. Thanks to these, I may actually survive the holidays this year and you will too. You're welcome.

*Tbh, we may receive a small portion of the sales made on this page which we will probably use to buy the products on this page.

We know the holidays aren't always an easy time, especially when you get cornered by certain relatives.

And the bickering between your mom and grandmother starts.

It's always the same argument every damn year.

But this year, you can make the family gatherings a little more bearable with your very own boozy advent calendar.

Alcohol: solving one family crisis after another.

It's like a Christmas countdown calendar for adults, but instead of chocolate you get a shot of whatever alcohol your heart desires.

Whether you're a gin-drinker
