McDonald’s is getting into the holiday spirit this year with their version of an advent calendar. Rewarding users that spend a minimum of $1 on their app, the mega fast food franchise will give away free items each day inspired by a movie or character that connects with this time of year.


The giveaways started yesterday with a free double cheeseburger for The Griswolds. Today’s free Big Mac is a meal fit for The Abominable Snow Monster and tomorrow is a free Egg McMuffin for The Grinch. Other references include John McClane, Rudolph, Gizmo, Buddy the Elf, Scrooge, Frosty the Snowman, Frank Constanza and of course Santa.


Check out the full calendar below and download the app here if you have a craving and want to be rewarded with something extra. McDonald’s also recently opened their first-ever Golden M Barber Shop.
