NEW Easter Countdown Advent Calendar

Posted by Kirsty on 5th Mar 2020

Why not begin a new Easter tradition with our 12-Day Self-fill Countdown to Easter calendar?

With so much excitement and anticipation surrounding the established Christmas advent calendar, we thought it would be ‘egg-citing’ to carry this anticipation through into counting down Easter celebrations, beginning 12 Days before Easter Sunday, with our new self-fill countdown Easter Calendar.

Traditionally a religious celebration, Easter is synonymous with new beginnings, family festivities and an appreciation for others. Easter maintains its religious significance; however, we have come to associate the season with spring cleaning, eating chocolate eggs and hunting for goodies hidden by the Easter Bunny.

What is the 12 Day Easter countdown?

According to Christian belief, this 12-day count down reflects on the days leading to Jesus’s resurrection on Easter Sunday. It has been a tradition in many Christian families to use filled plastic eggs each day to teach children the meaning of Easter, each of the 12 eggs containing a passage or an item corresponding to the Easter story.  We are building on this tradition with an advent calendar that can be used during this period, whether you are celebrating a religious Easter or simply getting the family excited for the arrival of the Easter bunny.

The ‘Arrival of the Easter Bunny’ calendar is a fun and quirky way to countdown to Easter, where adults and children alike can open a window to reveal a daily treat. Simply select your filling and gift to a loved one. You can choose to open a window a day, counting the 12 days before Easter, or use it on Easter Sunday to encourage discussion of the Easter story.

Whether using the advent calendar to countdown the arrival of the Easter Bunny or as an aid to recite the story of Easter, we hope you have fun using our unique calendars.
