When I was a child, I loved Advent calendars. We weren’t thoroughly secular at the time — and I opened up all the squares in one go — but I loved them all the same. There’s something about a tiny gift every day until Christmas that is a delight.

Now that I’m grown, I have never gotten my kids an Advent calendar because it has never occurred to me. (And not only because I’m a killjoy.) It has always felt as one more thing I have to do during the busy holiday season, and that sort of thing places a burden that I hate.

However, if I had known that Advent calendars could be fun and teach kids Chinese? SIGN ME UP. HERE IS MY MONEY.

Sagebooks HK, the company behind my favorite Chinese curriculum, asked me to tell my readers about their 2020 Advent Calendar — and well, you all know how much I love Sagebooks. Of course, I agreed.
