There are many fun Advent calendars available with everything from Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, wine, chocolate, and even socks. Now there's a twist on the typical Advent calendar that actually brings out the spirit of the holiday season. According to, there is a feel-good reverse Advent calendar that is circulating that helps out the hungry this holiday season. Instead of receiving treats each day in December leading up to Christmas, you are asked to collect a different food item for the local food bank. By the end of the reverse Advent calendar, you would have a hearty box of twenty-four food items to bring to those in need right in your community.

I love this idea. We may make this a family tradition. What a great way to get the whole family involved and help out those right in your community. You can donate your items to the Regional Food Bank or the Food Pantries of the Capital Region.
