Advent Calendars

One of the ways you can mark Advent in your home, is by using an Advent Calendar.

An Advent Calendar is traditionally presented in the form of a pious picture printed on card. Another piece of card, printed with bible texts, is glued on the back. The front card is perforated in twenty-four places, to create small flaps or windows that can be folded open to show the bible texts beneath.

One window is opened each day from 1 December to 24 December (Christmas Eve).

Advent Calendars can be very beautiful, and they are always cheerful decorations to have in your home in the weeks before Christmas.
