2015 Advent Calendars

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a smaller selection of Advent calendars this year, but its trusty Cloisters Unicorn is still with us, and so is the Victorian Christmas Advent Calendar. The Avian Holiday Pop-Up Calendar is out of stock, and they seem to have discontinued the lovely old New York-themed and Met Museum-themed versions.

As usual, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston has some of the best calendars available. The Venice, Westminster Abbey, Weihnachtshaus and Snow at Argenteuil (one of the loveliest) calendars are all 25% off.


Tasha Tudor fans can buy an Oh Holy Night calendar from the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown:

By far the most beautiful—and reasonably priced, unless you’re outside the UK—calendars again this year are from the National Gallery. The Altarpieces calendar opens to reveal a tritpych of the Madonna and Child with Sts. Dominic and Aurea:

The National Gallery’s Brueghel calendar shows the artist’s Adoration of the Kings:

For grownups who tipple during Advent, Master of Malt offers another batch of daily dram calendars of whisky, bourbon, gin, vodka, tequila, cognac, etc.


The trend of online Advent calendars about 10 years ago has faded a bit, but Advientos still provides a service to build your own online Advent calendar.
