Calendars & Cards
Cokesbury is your one stop destination for Advent.
Advent focuses on preparing for the coming of Christ. The term is derived from the Latin word adventus, meaning to come. The season or period of Advent always includes the four Sundays before Christmas Day. (It begins with the Sunday closest to November 30 and ends with Christmas Eve day.) Because December 25 does not always fall on the same day of the week, the number of days in the Advent season varies from year to year.
Among many traditions that families have enjoyed over the years during the Advent season is one of the simplest and most popular—the Advent calendar. An Advent calendar is a special calendar used to count the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas. Many families use Advent calendars to mark each day in December until Christmas Eve. There are many variations of these calendars. Cokesbury’s Advent calendars are an awesome, affordable, and fun way to count off the days of Advent until Christmas!
