About the event

The Advent calendar is a key part of the Advent customs, helping Christians count the day until Christmas Eve. Over the years, it has become a part of the Christmas celebrations, widely used worldwide. The traditional Advent four-week season begins four weeks and Sundays before Christmas. It is termed to be the beginning of the liturgical year. During the Advent weeks, Christians light an Advent wreath, keep an Advent calendar, pray an Advent daily devotional, and generally begin preparing for Christmas.
