Return to the Advent calendar.

Advent Fast Fact
In England, an old Advent custom called for poor women to carry around the “Advent images” — two dolls dressed to represent Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary. A halfpenny was expected from anyone who encountered them. For those who refused, bad luck was to menace their household. And if you were not visited by the doll-bearers before Christmas Eve, a similar streak of bad luck was to befall you.
