    From the point of view of religion or obesity?

    I think it's been that way for some time. Hardly news.

    Church attendance is about 10% ... so advent calendars are largely in line with that.

    So we should allow the church about 10% influence in the country, in line with it's number of regular worshippers?

    That's roughly half the number who take part in coarse fishing, for example....

    Well... if you follow that argument we would be giving Muslims more influence that CofE because Mosque attendance outstrips state church.

    Why should either have any major say? Rather than fishermen (say)? Or chess players?

    Why chess players? Why not Monopoly players?

    Found figures for Chess easily as it is a game with an organisation, clubs etc. Not sure monopoly has the same.

    Well you said 10% influence for CofE, just following the logic you laid out.

    10% isn't major (in my view!)

    Anyway, bit off the topic of advent calendars... been years since I've had one.

    Surprised it's that high.

    1 I would only buy a 'religious' one
    2 No flippin' chocolates
    3 I don't care
    4 My g/daughter knows the bare bones of the 'Christmas story' - thanks to school and the fact she seems to have memorised the narrator's part of their play
    5 I have a stable and figurines of all the usual suspects so we repeat this every year anyway

    We've got the National Trust one, non-religious but very pretty.
