A modernized version is the Online Advent Calendar, that you can use even on the go. These versions often concentrate on the spiritual, liturgical side of Advent, directing our attention to the readings of the Advent season, the saints of December and appropriate quotations from the teaching office of the Church. Here are two of Fr. Bob's favorites:
- By the U.S. Bishops' Conference: "Ad-Venire: an online advent calendar"
- By the Australian Bishops' Conference: "The xT3 Advent Calendar"
ADVENT CALENDAR APPS FOR YOUR SMART PHONE
Fr. Bob says: "I've looked at a lot of Advent Calendar apps, and the only one I like is xT3. On the other hand, I really like it. The xT3 Advent Calendar is great." Just click on the Australian xT3 link above.
PAPER ADVENT CALENDARS
The U.S. bishops have also published a nice Advent & Christmas Calendar that you can print out on 2 sheets of paper and hang on your refrigerator. It looks very nice. The USCBB PDF FAMILY ADVENT CALENDAR
