With December quickly approaching, the countdown to Christmas is about to officially begin. One popular way to mark the time is with an advent calendar, in which each day reveals a new trinket until you reach December 25. Typically, these small items are an assortment of candy treats or toys for kids. But recently, companies have been introducing contemporary advent calendars that are a twist on tradition.
You'd expect a conventional countdown calendar to include imagery of Christmas trees, holly, and snowmen. The Embroidery Advent Calendar, however, strays from holiday-themed illustrations and sweets by providing instructions on how to stitch a unique Christmas-themed illustration each day of December.
