There are moments when you realise time flies so fast that the ONE special event we’ve all been waiting for has finally come. And what do you know? The Holiday Season is fast approaching once again!
LEGO fans are excited during these BER months, because it is when the much awaited LEGO Advent Calendar sets are released. So if you’re asking when do the LEGO Advent Calendars come out, that practically answers your question!
The release of the LEGO Advent Calendars mark the beginning of the Christmas season for the entire LEGO community. LEGO Advent Calendars are a collection of sets based on popular LEGO themes. Teasers of these sets are advertised on the Internet and various media to build up the frenzy as the BER months get closer. Each LEGO Advent Calendar set has 24 surprise toy models. From these 24 models, one surprise gets to be unboxed every day starting 1st of December until the 24th, Christmas Eve!
The term “Advent Calendar” is a tribute to the Advent Season observed by Christians as the time of “expectant waiting” in preparation for Christ’s Nativity, which is celebrated on the 25th of December. Some families in Europe celebrate the Advent Calendar tradition by showing a scene from the story of Christ’s nativity with a flip calendar, every day from the first day of December until Christmas Eve. The thing that delights the children the most is the little gifts they receive from the adults as they listen to the stories. LEGO adopted this tradition, and it launched the very first Advent Calendar range in 1998.
Now that you’ve been fired up with excitement, let’s take a look at this year’s new Advent Calendars from LEGO! Read on and begin the countdown to Christmas…
