This weekend, a reddit user named /u/exarchtwin made this post about buying 26 boosters and making a Magic advent calendar.

Not a bad idea, what with Walgreen's having their "BOGO" sale right now. Buy one Get one free is pretty good on booster if you want to pay $2 per booster and not have to buy at case quantity to get that price. $52 buys a month of booster popping goodness. You don't have to be Catholic to want to get in on that!

Apparently exarch twin isn't the only one getting into the Holiday Spirit! /u/lokimorgan posted these pics

According to their post, these goods are for an Advent Calendar for their 9-year-old and most of these will end up in his cube. Their 9-year-old has a cube, and this stuff is going in it. No, they are not taking applications to be their kid, someone already asked.

I like the idea of a Magic Advent calendar. Maybe I will bust that box of Born of the Gods I've been sitting on. If you could put one together, how would you fill it up?
