The holidays can be a difficult time for the legal profession. Some new graduates have to face their extended family for the first time since failing the bar exam. Others are now inundated with questions from friends casually seeking legal advice. But let us focus on the bright side of this time of year: You are probably going to get some gifts. And free gifts are awesome.
We here at Bitter Lawyer have previously briefed you on the Five Gifts Not to Give a Laid-Off Lawyer for Christmas. I would advise printing that article off and passing it out to all your family members at Thanksgiving this year. This year we hope to be able to help fill your Christmas/Kwanza/Chanukah/Winter Solstice list. The first item on every lawyer’s list: The Whisky Advent Calendar.
Forget chocolate, bring on the booze. 24 days. 24 doors. 24 different samples of delicious whisky. Please and thank you. I will be as happy as Thurman Murman with this Advent Calendar. Master of Malt, the company behind the greatest idea ever, does not disclose all of the contents in the bottles but does say that behind one of the doors is a sample of a 50 year old Scotch whisky. My cheeks are going to be as red as Santa’s once I find $238.47 to pay for this.
For those who prefer gin, Master of Malt does provide a Ginvent Calendar for only $127.14. That is pretty much stealing.
