Christmas is just around the corner

Christmas is just around the corner | Digital Advent Calendars | Scoop.it
this is FINLAND's advent calendar contains popular Finnish instructions and recipes for the lead-up to Christmas, making the wait more enjoyable - and shorter!
tricias's insight:

Updated 04-12-15

This years calendar is uses Finland's country themed emojis.  Just follow this calendar to find out more about  Finland and the Fins.

The  about page says

 

"Finland is the first country in the world to publish its own set of country themed emojis. The Finland emoji collection contains 30 tongue-in-cheek emotions, which were created to explain some hard-to-describe Finnish emotions, Finnish words and customs.

The emojis are part of the Christmas calendar published by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland on this site. We are THE Christmas nation, because the original Santa Claus comes from Finland! The first calendar hatch revealing the first emoji explanation opens on 1 December. On top of the 24 calendar hatches there will be general Finnish emojis released. If you wondered, why we only have 24 hatches on the calendar instead of 25, it is because Christmas is celebrated in Finland on the Christmas Eve, not Christmas Day.

 

You can use and share the unmodified images freely for non-commercial use."

Update 04-12-15

This year's theme is childhood and the images  and information (so far) are all linked to Liverpool museums.  But worth  a look  for talking points.
