November is almost here, and that means it’s almost time for National Advent Calendar Day. Aldi invented National Advent Calendar Day in 2020 to celebrate the annual release of its ever-popular Christmas countdown calendars, including calendars that feature chocolate, cheese, wine, and beer.

Since its inception, National Advent Calendar Day always falls on the first Wednesday of November. In 2023, that is November 1st.

Aldi recently unveiled its full Advent calendar lineup for the 2023 season. We’ve spotted some old favorites such as the wine, cheese, beer, chocolate, and coffee calendars. Also returning at the hot sauce and candle Advent calendars, along with a variety of LEGO calendars and various toy calendars. In addition, the dog treat Advent calendar is coming back, although we don’t see the cat treat Advent calendar listed for this year. (Both pet treat Advent calendars were reformulated in 2022 after being recalled in 2021 over choking concerns.)

Keep in mind that these are all limited-time Aldi Finds. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re most likely gone until next year. Many of these calendars are expected to sell out quickly. Purchase limits may be imposed on some popular items to ensure there are more products to go around.

Also remember that Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that are not in stock at your local store, and they do not offer rain checks. Stores also cannot hold or reserve products for customers, and Aldi states that they cannot provide customers with inventory counts by location. In other words, if you try to call Aldi to find out how many calendars are left, they won’t be able to give you an answer.

The Aldi website states that Advent calendars will be available for curbside pickup and delivery beginning November 2nd, thus giving priority to in-person shoppers on November 1st.

Also, sometimes for the more popular items such as the Wine Advent Calendar, Aldi may hand out line tickets to people waiting outside the store before it opens on November 1st.

Without further ado, here are the 2023 Aldi Advent calendars. (The Aldi website notes that additional calendars will roll out in November and early December.)
