Is it a book? Is it an advent calendar? It's somewhere in the middle!
The world's first ADVENT BOOK
Ring-bound so it can stand it up as a picture-a-day calendar, perfect for desk/mantelpiece/bedside table

A fun book of Christmas facts, one per day from December 1st to 31st.
Illustrated festive traditions from around the world up until Christmas (Dec 1-25), followed by international New Year facts (Dec 26-31)

From giant cats to goats made of straw, everyone celebrates Christmas slightly differently, and this book is a window into some of these differences.
Find out where in the world rollerblading, spiders, KFC and radishes are just part of the annual traditions.

Featuring all THIRTEEN of the Icelandic "Yule Lads" that visit every Christmas!

And for an extra £3 I can dedicate the book to whoever you like, and draw a festive Christmas doodle inside the front cover.
Just leave any specific names and guidelines in a note at the checkout.

    Both me and my boyfriend love this little Advent Calender book! We had fun flipping through it every day and seeing all the fun Christmas/pre-Christmas stuff that happens all over the world. Also fun that there were New Year things added, now you don't have to stop at December 24/25, but you can continue on.

    Also thanks for the nice drawing inside!

    Loving displaying the daily nuggets from other cultures. Mostly safe for a 5 year old, but Dec 24th raises a few questions about the whole shebang. Thankfully we could display the second Dec 25th instead.
    One of the days has the wrong ordinal suffix, so not perfect but hey it's Christmas so 5 stars.
