THE daily pressure of opening a door on an advent calendar is already proving too much for overworked Britons.Can guess how it ends
Just five days into December, more than three-quarters of advent calendar owners are reporting a backlog that they fear they will never get on top of.
Contractor Tom Logan said: Im absolutely flat out at the moment, so when my mum sent me an advent calendar my heart just sank.
Im exhausted just looking for the right door, and then youre got to open it without tearing the surrounding cardboard, prise the chocolate out, make a guess about what the hell its supposed to be and then eat it.
Somewhere in there Im meant to pause while my heart is gladdened by Yuletide cheer, but who has time?
Entrepreneur Julian Cook said: Im running a business with a turnover of millions, so I think Ive earned the right not to do my own advent calendar.
My PA keeps on top of them for me, opening the doors and sending me daily emails about which symbol of seasonal joy has been revealed.
I dont read the emails.
