Christmas lovers officially kicked off their festive countdown this weekend by opening the first doors of their advent calendars.
And while most were excited by their chocolaty treat (or beauty gift, boozy bottle or other exciting prezzie if they’ve got a fancy one), people who bought their calendar at John Lewis were left a tad confused.
People spotted a rather embarrassing mistake behind the first door on Saturday, and the same thing for door number two.
As well as a lovely photo and a chocolate, there’s also a countdown to Christmas on the inside of the door – but it was wrong.
Door one states there were 16 more days until Christmas, but unfortunately the wait is longer than that, and door two says the big day is 24 days away.
While the advent calendar is stocked by John Lewis it’s not actually one of their own products, and the calender is actually made by gift company Woodmansterne.
People took to social media to share their disappointment at the error, which also left some people slightly panicked
A spokesperson for Woodmansterne said: "We are devastated to learn there is a mistake on one of our advent calendars.
"If you are affected, please contact [email protected] with your address and a photo of your advent calendar and we’ll do all we can to put it right as quickly as possible."
John Lewis has also released a statement, saying: "We’re so sorry for the disappointment caused when customers opened up this advent calendar.
"The supplier is working closely with us and other retailers to put this right as quickly as possible, and for any customer who has bought one of these advent calendars from John Lewis we will offer them a full refund."
