LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar Celebrates the Force and the Season


lego-star-wars-advent-calendarTomorrow is December 1, and you know what that means: It’s time to open the 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar.

This has been a long time coming. My boys are giddy with anticipation. Also, the Force.

The LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar features 24 Star Wars-themed gifts like exclusive minifigures (there are six minifigures and three droids) that are presented every day as a new window is opened in the countdown to Christmas.

Basically, every morning is like Christmas in that the kids wake up earlier than anyone else feels is necessary so that they can open their gift, or, in this case, a new window, and enjoy the bask of Star Wars goodness.

I’m okay with that.

If you are curious as to what treasures await in the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar or want to see what early morning joy looks like on little boy faces, you can follow my daily updates on Instagram.

Merry Christmas, and may the Force be with you.
