Devizes Living Advent CalendarThis Is WiltshireChristmas around the world will be the theme of this year's Devizes Living Advent Calendar.

 

Jill's comment- this is a really creative and community focussed idea, rather than just Christmas lights, how about a Christmas window display- get you whole youth group to do one in each of their homes and then have a walk or drive around to look at them all and to see which one is the most creative! (especially encourage the use of recycled and Eco friendly materials)
