I remember the days when advent calendars were an A4 piece of card with a picture behind each door
On Christmas Eve or Day (why do Advent Calendars stop at Christmas Eve?) you’d find a biblical photograph of the baby Jesus, surrounded by hay in a manger. These days most of us demand something a bit more. I have rounded up a few and I am sure you will find one to suit every member of your family:
