Amazing Paper Advent Calendars has been updated for 2021. I adore Advent – the whole counting down to Christmas really gets me excited, perhaps that is to do with the fact that I am a Christmas Baby. I have such fond memories of paper advent calendars from when I was younger.
One of my most treasured Christmas Decorations is my Paper FlipBook Advent Calendar where each day is an image and a poem telling the nativity story. I won it in a colouring competition at Sunday school over 40 years ago.
I think that paper advent calenders help bring the magic without the expectation of anything in return and they are just a little moment of joy.
