Homemade Advent Calendars
In Norway and Scandinavia there is a tradition of having a so-called Julekalender (the Norwegian word for an Advent Calendar) starting on the first of December, and ending on Christmas Eve.
The pattern is from a very dear book of mine. 24 rings are sewn on the Calendar so wrapped gifts can be hung by them. Beginning on the first day of December, one parcel is opened each day, counting down the days remaining until Christmas Eve, from one to twenty-four where the 24th gift often is bigger or more expensive than the others.
Thank you Anne for sending me the pictures so I could brag about these Julekalenders.
