Part of the pleasure of Christmas is, of course, in the anticipation – and nothing heightens the excitement of the countdown to Christmas as much as an Advent Calendar. We can all remember the thrill of opening those little doors or windows each morning when we were children and knowing that each time we were one sleep nearer the big day. But even as adults we can recreate that tingle of Christmas elation through a luxury Advent Calendar that chimes just for us. Why not treat yourself or a loved one to a fabulous Advent Calendar to usher in the festive season?
