Want to count down to Christmas with Aldi? Plan to get to stores early Wednesday to get your hands on Aldi's limited Advent calendars.

Wednesday is the discount grocer's second annual National Advent Calendar Day, which is held on the first Wednesday in November. Sixteen calendars go on sale when stores open Wednesday, including the wine and cheese, beer and toys and candy collections.

The festive calendars are used to count down the days of Advent, the religious days leading up to Christmas Eve and traditionally offered simpler treats like chocolate. But in recent years, fancier fare has been tucked behind paper flaps from perfume to liquor to woo holiday shoppers.

To get your hands on one of the limited items, which have sold out quickly in past years with some landing on eBay, you'll have to head to one of the 2,100-plus Aldi stores in 37 states. However, not all states or municipalities allow alcohol sales at grocery stores; those stores are expected to carry the cheese and other calendars.

On its website, Aldi said the "calendar collection goes on sale Wednesday, Nov. 3, with new calendar varieties rolling out throughout November and early December."

Aldi says that based on supply some calendars "may be available for purchase online in the days following Nov. 3. Curbside pickup and delivery for Advent calendars and holiday countdowns differs by location."

Costco has already released its 2021 wine and beer Advent calendars. The Costco wine calendar costs $99.99 and the beer calendar is selling for $59.99. Prices and availability vary by location.

Many major retailers around the globe plan to sell the cheese calendar that considers itself the original cheese Advent calendar.

The "Ilchester So Wrong It's Nom Cheese Advent Calendar" is scheduled to be available Nov. 1 for $20 at stores nationwide including  Sam’s Club, Target, Supervalu, Sprouts, Schnucks, Meijer, Jewel, Lidl and Publix.
