Amazon.com (good people!) is offering the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar for 2011. And though I have often heard of LEGO being associated with Star Wars, I think this is the first time I've ever heard Star Wars and LEGO associated with an Advent calendar.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with "Advent calendars", traditionally, they have been calendars with little "windows", one to be opened every day counting down to Christmas. According to wiki:
In many of these calendars, each window opens to reveal an image, a poem, or a portion of a story such as the story of the Nativity of Jesus. More elaborate Advent calendars have a small gift concealed in each window, such as a toy or a chocolate item.
I had only heard of them in a religious context, counting down the days until the celebration of Jesus' birth, Advent being the "coming of Christ into the world". And nothing says "Jesus is coming" like LEGO Star Wars toys, I guess.
If this floats your boat, you can find it here...although if you've waited this long, you probably want to wait for the 2012 model.
