The portent of death forms an integral thread of the Christmas Story (symbolised by the gift of Myrrh, which is used for embalming). What better way to make this relevant to today's children than by making one of the advent calendar chocolates lethal - or at least, taste a bit nasty?

||bun for nasty, not lethal!! funny though. + (I remember back in grammar school that someone wrapped a chicken bouillon cube as a chocolate and had someone eat it.)
||Use actual frankincense and myrrh. I could bake this in a couple of minutes in my front room.
