I’ll be dashing, dancing and prancing to my nearest Aldi store on November 4.

Every year, the holiday season seems to start earlier and earlier. And normally, I'm a firm believer in waiting until December to begin my holiday activities. But in a stressful year like 2020, I'm willing to make an exception—especially when it comes to fun, new seasonal items like Aldi's Hard Seltzer Advent Calendar.

Available in stores on November 4, Aldi's Advent calendar will feature 24, 8.5-ounce cans of Vista Bay hard seltzer. And while a traditional calendar would come 24 different flavors (one new flavor for each day of December leading up to Christmas), this version will instead feature 12 flavors, with two cans of each variety. 

The 12 flavors include black cherry, coconut-mango, ruby grapefruit, blood orange, blueberry, passionfruit, mandarin-lime, green apple, peach, strawberry, raspberry-lime and tangy lemon. Each has a 5% ABV, or about the same as a regular beer. Since the calendar costs $34.99, that breaks down to just $1.46 per can! 

This calendar is perfect if you enjoy fruity cocktails and want to treat yourself (or a fellow seltzer lover). But if you can't wait until November 4 to buy the calendar, there are other alcohol-themed ones available, including a whiskey-filled one and a German beer version. Whatever calendar you choose is sure to brighten up your holiday season!
