Just about as humorous as The Bee.

Harry Potter: Holiday Magic: The Official Advent Calendar Calendar

At least the Advent calendar with 24 beers that I saw at Costco Liquor has a Lutheranesque theme: beer.   ;)

If you look down the Amazon page, you could also get a Star Wars Advent Calendar, a Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.

"'Advent' is a decidedly NON-secular word. But there's nothing that increases excitement like a good countdown (just ask astronauts). I like to go with the traditional chocolate calendar but you can definitely get a little fancier. LEGO has a pretty sweet Star Wars calendar (which I know about because of my friend Nicole Bernard who took the picture above) and if you are still occupying your shopping (AS YOU SHOULD BE), Etsy has about a bazillion handmade advent calendars to choose from, like this one which is secular AND cute."

From the Secular Humanist Advent Calendar article:
Quote
6. A Menorah
As a one-quarter Jew, I took up the tradition of lighting a menorah in college. I also go to the equal-opportunity menorah lighting ceremonies at work, which take place every single day of Hanukah. When you are celebrating SHC, it's important to be inclusive and to take all opportunities you can to leave your desk. Also, I think candles are fun and related to the whole Christmas lights/darkness in winter/pagan thing. I also love trying to chant the prayers and I always feel like people think I am part of something cool when they think I am Jewish, kind of like I am one of those kids back in high school with a huge family and five super hot older brothers.

My sister has a Christmas centerpiece that is a minimalist Christmas tree with a single candle on each branch - or so she thought.  The first time she had it out my brother walked in and said "Nice Menorah."  I walked in sometime later and said "Nice Menorah."
