With seven weeks to go to Christmas it is time to start covering holiday seasons related topics. The first post in this series is about Advent calendars. For those not familiar with these calendars: an Advent calendar is a special calendar used to count or celebrate the days in anticipation of Christmas, beginning at 1st December. I have selected 10 beautiful advent calendars that either can be made yourself or can be purchased on Etsy. You can find the links to the instructions or shops at the end of the post. Enjoy!

  16. I grow up with adventskalendar every year both at home & on the radio plus TV. Both were fantastic to experience. Radio, because you could use your imagination without pictures & all actors were fantastic with their voices. TV for the amazing adventure that were created. Most of them became classic. The one with the roles is great because you can fit various sizes each day. Great share, thank you πŸ™‚

  17. Thank you *so* much for featuring my Advent Calendar on your blog! You just made my day πŸ™‚
