The Tradition of Advent

The Tradition of Advent

Advent is a time of expectation and hope. December is always such a busy month for everyone and often Christmas is upon us before we really have had a chance to enjoy the build up. Our beautiful advent calendars and candles are a lovely way to take that pause and enjoy the magic of the build up.

Scented Calendar Candle by Ferm Living

Over in Denmark, a cherished tradition is the kalenderlys, or Christmas Calendar Candle. The idea is to burn it each day, counting down the days to Christmas. Taking a modern approach to this advent ritual, this candle has a chart on the front of the glass container, where you can cross off each day until Christmas Eve.

Star Christmas Calendar in Sand by Ferm Living

This house-shaped calendar has small pockets for treats and gifts – one for each day of December until Christmas Eve. Its smaller size makes it a great fit for small kids' rooms, between two doors, or in modest spaces. The advent calendar is made of quality cotton canvas with printed gold stars.
