Advent is the start of the Christmas season in Britain.
It begins four Sundays before Christmas.
Advent calendars are a countdown to Christmas Day.
The first sign of Christmas in a Bristish home is the children's advent calendar.
The calendars start on the first day of December.
Advent calendars are a fun way to help children to know when Christmas Eve will arive, an important night for them because Father Christmas (Santa Claus) will visit them bringing gifts.
An Advent calendar is a poster or card with twenty-four small doors, one to be opened each day from 1st December until Christmas Eve.
Each door conceals a picture.
Every morning children open one window of the calendar to see a pretty picture or find a chocolate inside.
