What did everyone find behind the first door of their Advent calendars?
Here’s what people have been opening on social media.
Nothing sums up getting into the Christmas spirit quite like opening the first window of your Advent calendar.
Adults and children alike are filled with joy at the thought of opening the mysterious cardboard window on December 1 – but the real question is, what did everyone find?
Dunno why I act so excited to eat advent chocolate for breakfast like I don’t already eat chocolate for breakfast every other day of the year. Just feel it’s more acceptable in December #AdventCalendar pic.twitter.com/hEy111LbS4— Carly (@xcarlyboo) December 1, 2017
Because let’s face it, as much as we love our own calendars we want to know what everyone else got too.
So here’s a roundup of some of the things people found behind their first little magical door:
Alcohol, lots and lots of alcohol

This fortunate soul got Alan Titchmarsh behind their first door
Obviously there was lots of chocolate involved
And of course beauty
However, it wasn’t a happy start for some – as sheer disappointment waited behind the doors of this calendar
My kinder advent calendar was put in the wrong way round so when I opened the window there was plastic between me and the chocolate and if that’s not the crulest joke ever played I don’t know what is— Pips//:(( (@ebony_ghost) December 1, 2017
