You’re probably familiar with an advent calendars, where you receive a small gift at the start of every new day through Christmas. While the tradition of the advent calendar is nearly 300 years old, leave it to Alexa to usher in the electronic advent calendar. Just say, "Alexa, open my gift” each day. Alexa will have a different response each day, varying from jokes and fun facts to a musical interlude. There are also a few Advent Calendar Alexa skills you can use, although you’ll have to enable them in the Alexa app first. For a more religious feel, Advent Calendar reads the verse of the day each day of the advent season and tells you what day of advent it is. And if you want all jokes all the time, Fun Advent Calendar will tell you a Christmas-themed joke each day. You can also specify a previous day to hear a joke you enjoyed again.
