We are in the countdown to the holidays! What better way to mark the passing days than with the traditional Advent calendar?

First used by German Lutherans in anticipation of Christmas Day, the Advent calendar is now used by many other Christian denominations to count down the days until December 25. These days the Advent calendar has grown in popularity and is now used by just about everyone, religious or not.

In years past we've seen a rise in non-traditional Advent calendars. Instead of the pieces of candy, you'll find everything from wine, beer, socks, makeup, and even cheese behind each door.

I must say though, I think Michigan-based MOO-ville Creamery has one of the best Advent calendars I've ever seen! In anticipation of the holiday season MOO-ville has announced its one-of-a-kind Advent calendar using what else--ice cream-- to mark each passing day!

In a social media post the Nashville, MI creamery wrote,

MOO-ville's ice cream ADVENT calendar! Try 25 of our homemade ice creams December 1st-Christmas...Our sample size will come with an ice cream description list to correspond with each number...try some flavors you've never had before (maybe)!

This is the best news since Hudsonville Ice Cream announced its collaboration with Little Debbie!

With MOO-ville's unique Advent calendar you'll be able to sample 25 different flavors of their Michigan-made ice cream. Judging from the photos that includes everything from Super Cow, mint chocolate chip, their blue ribbon winning vanilla and chocolate, and of course a few surprises too!
