Christmas may be the holiday with the most recognizable traditions. From decorating an evergreen tree to hanging stockings and reading the poem A Visit from St. Nicholas before settling in for a long winter’s nap, there’s a bit of magic for anyone celebrating. Whether you celebrate with the commercial glitz and glam that made the holiday what it is today or subscribe to a more traditional or religious celebration, you’ve probably heard of Advent and the accompanying practices.
The most well known of these practices might just be keeping an Advent calendar. Starting on the first day of December, the traditional calendars function as a countdown to Christmas Eve and Jesus’s birth. Classic Advent calendars feature nativity scenes or images of Saint Nicholas with accompanying symbols that are synonymous with both. But, as Christmas celebrations changed with the times and revelers’ interests, so too did Advent calendars.
When you’re shopping for a calendar, you’ll find everything from nativity scenes hidden behind paper doors to sweets hidden in tiny cubbies decorated with pop culture characters. So, while the tradition has clearly adapted with the population celebrating Christmas, it is still alive and well! Which is why you’ll find our selection of Advent calendars is ready to meet the needs of your Christmas and Advent season!
