Each day, a special Advent-themed Daily Jolt, with an opportunity for reflection and a microChallenge. Some of the reflections come from unlikely sources, and the challenges help you to take an action, usually a small one, based on the reflection.

Keep coming back every day until Advent is over for daily prizes of books, t-shirts and Sirius swag, as well as opportunities for reflection, for action, for learning and for Charitable giving.
One of the major themes of Advent is waiting to be surprised by joy. This anticipation is not merely a long and extended wait for the great joy of receiving Jesus as our gift on Christmas, but rather to create a spirit of daily anticipation. What does God have in store for me today?
That same sense of surprise is evident in traditional Advent Calendars, where, throughout the season, children open different calendar windows to reveal special surprises. With both of those elements in mind, Busted Halo® has created our own Advent Surprise Calendar. Each day of Advent will open a new link on our calendar that will contain a chance at winning a great prize as well as an opportunity for reflection, for action, for learning and for Charitable giving. Readers will find everything from unusual Advent facts and Christmas reflections from some VERY unlikely sources to Christmas recipes and opportunities to reach out and surprise others this holiday season.
We’re also giving away great prizes DAILY! Every day of advent we’ll give readers the chance to enter a random drawing to win prizes that include a grand prize of a a Sirius Sportster 5 Satellite Radio with car and home installation kits as well as a free six-month (6) subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio (a value of over $200 (two hundred dollars)). Other prizes include
“Sirius Swag”—Sirius Satellite T-shirts, shoulder bags, hats etc—as well as books, cds and dvds from BustedHalo.com’s Halo Store. (Read contest rules here.)
All you need to be eligible is come back to our calendar each day, open that day’s new link and follow the instructions on how to enter your name in the drawing. It’s easy, you can enter as often as you’d like (and up your chances of winning). Winners will be chosen within 24 hours and notified.
