What are Advent Adventure Christmas Cards?

The purpose of these Advent Adventure Christmas cards is to encourage people to engage with the festive season in simple joyful ways.  It is all too easy for December to become a time where we feel over-burdened with ever expanding to-do lists and credit card bills.  The Advent Adventure Christmas cards are an antidote to busyness and commercialism, designed to foster connection with family, friends and the world around us.  Each card features a prompt intended to make the final month of the year one to savour and enjoy, if only for a few minutes each day.

The images were created by the illustrator Alice Roche, the text by writer Rae Ritchie.

 

What do I do with Advent Adventure Christmas Cards?

The cards can be used in two ways.

Firstly, you can buy a pack to use as a guided adventure through advent, responding to one prompt each day (either following the cards in order or drawing a random one every morning).

Secondly, you can buy a pack (or several!) to use a fun alternative to standard holiday cards.  There is space on the rear of each card to write a personalized message to the recipient.  The cards are not assigned to a specific day or date therefore they can be sent any time during the run up to 25th December.

Of course you can make the most of both options by buying two or more packs!
