Here at MadMolly we believe in a traditional Christmas countdown. Come the first day of December the children rush to the window or pocket with a number 1 on it and flip it open or reach inside to see what is there. Most of us will remember how exciting that was, not only to see a picture of Rudolph or Santa, or if you were lucky, a piece of chocolate in the shape of a christmas tree! Yum yum. December simply could not go by quick enough, with sights set firmly on the magical 25th, when Santa, pulled by his reindeer would fly down the chimney with a bag of goodies for all well behaved children. And the Advent Calendar was the perfect means of marking that countdown. Remember the thin cardboard ones we were given many years ago as children? Well, things have moved on.
With that in mind, MadMolly have many fantastic Calendars in stock. They are large nisses or pixies from the Danish company Maileg. They are known as pixies or elves in the UK, nisses in Denmark and Norway, tomtes in Sweden or tonttus in Finland. They are mythological creatures from Scandinavian folklore typically associated with the winter solstice and the Christmas season. We have many varieties of boys, girls and a santa. They will hang on your childrens' bedroom walls, with 24 pockets on them where you can hide various Christmas related items of your choice. These wonderful calendars can be handed down through the generations and become a key part of family Christmases for many years to come, generating smiles and electrifying anticipation in the run up to Christmas, which every child should be allowed to experience.
