Give-Away #28 : A beautiful Hotel Chocolat Advent Calendar

Last minute announcement: the winner is Nia Wyn Dunn
 
Some cultures are luckier than others when it comes to Christmas traditions. Growing up in France the only calendar we  looked forward to was l'Almanach des Postes. A piece of cardboard with an old-fashion picture in the center.
 
 
Children have the privilege to choose which picture will adorn the wall in the kitchen or the loo. The choice is limited, sweating donkeys with heavy loads on their back, young 19th century lady in négligée, that was my dad's choice if I happened to be at school when the postman pop in for his annual tip and the sale of the horrid calendar.
 
First time I heard about an advent calendar was through a friend from Lille. Allegedly the advent tradition was strong in the north. Almost enough to make me pack my baby rucksack and move.
 
I have since made up  for lost time and it's with glee that this year, I am sharing the advent calendar good fortune with one Pebble Soup reader.  The countdown to Christmas begins with this beautiful Hotel Chocolat advent calendar. Featuring 24 fabulous Christmas sculptures, including reindeer, snowmen, penguins and enchanted Christmas trees, to name just a few.
The winner will have the choice of one milk, dark or white chocolates.
 
Three ways to win
 
 1 – Comment on the blog Leave a comment below, sharing your favourite Christmas chocolates. Mine is definitely orange peel.
 
2 – Twitter Follow @solangeweb on Twitter. If you already follow, it goes without saying that you are welcome too. Then tweet the following:
I've entered @HotelChocolat Advent Calendars #giveaway from Pebble Soup http://goo.gl/l8CAuW #PebbleSoupAdvent

3- Facebook Like Pebble Soup page

Terms and conditions:
One Winner will be selected via digital Randomiser shortly after closing date and announced on Twitter and on this page.
