An Advent calendar is a special calendar used to count the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas. Since the date of the First Sunday of Advent varies, falling between November 27 and December 3 inclusive, many Advent calendars, especially those that are reusable, often begin on December 1, although those that are produced for a specific year often include the last few days of November that are part of the liturgical season. The Advent calendar was first used by German Lutherans in the 19th and 20th centuries.
2021 brings a new holiday themed advent calendar, with yarn and treats to open each day from 1st December to the 24th December. The yarn will arrive in little bags, string and pegs will be in the box ready to hang the advent.
