With German origins that can be traced back to the 19th century, advent calendars are used to count the days leading up to Christmas. These days, it’s a fun way for brands to market their products from skincare and cosmetics to chocolates, toys, and more. Advent calendars are not exactly commonplace here in Kuala Lumpur and tend to be limited to imported brands only. We've made it easier for you and put together a list of places to get them in KL but you'll probably need to hurry and grab them before they run out.
