Advent Calendars

Advent Calendars are special calendars to use from December 1st to count the days of Advent before for Christmas. Like many other aspects of modern Christmas practices, the Advent calendar is of German origin, first used by German Lutherans in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Traditional Advent calendars such as those from Medici - feature the manger scene, Saint Nicholas, and winter weather.


Today there are many others with many differing themes. They come in a great many forms, from a simple card calendar with flaps covering windows for each of the days, to 3D cardboard scenes, fabric pockets, or painted wooden boxes with little places to hide a gift or chocolate.


These amazing advent calendars from Roger La Borde - slot together each day that passes in Advent until the full scene is completed on Christmas Day!


More designer orientated flat advent calendars are those from Sara Miller London – an award-winning British designer, is recognised for her use of rich textures and vivid colours, all embellished with delicate gold details which have become synonymous with the brand. 


 Whichever version you choose you will be joining an age-old tradition of looking forward to Christmas and anticipating the coming of the festive season.......
