Advent Calendars have come a long way since the first chocolate advent calendar appeared in 1958 and each year they get all the more exciting and extravagant.
The word advent derives from the Latin word for ‘coming’ and while for many, the meaning of the countdown has changed over the years; a calendar is a wonderful way to start off counting down to the most wonderful day of the year. Christmas only comes around once a year so why not countdown in style.
There are so many amazing calendars out there, making this a difficult task, however, we have narrowed it down to our grand favourites. Read on to find the perfect advent calendar to start the countdown on the 1st…
