Over 11,000 classes have downloaded the Advent Calendar, and you are welcome to download it for class use or otherwise in your school. This year they have added music to the Advent Calendar. There are options allow you to select between no music, quiet tunes or Christmas music.
When you open the advent calendar each day, not only will you see delightful, full-screen Christmas images on your computer, but you can also find out about Christmas traditions, such as why we have Christmas trees, or why we pull crackers at Christmas time! If the Advent Calendar is shared between the class, the software will even record the name of the child (or children) who opens the advent calendar each day. The Advent Calendar also contains links to Religious festivals of other faiths during December, such as Bodhi Day or Hannukah.
