When is the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sunday of Advent 2017?
As we all know, Advent gifts are to be given on the Sunday of the last four Sundays before Christmas Eve. The 4th Advent thus marks how close we are to Christmas Eve, and serves as a countdown to the cozy evening. Advent marks the last 4 Sundays before the birth of Jesus. If 24 December falls on a Sunday, this is the 4th Sunday of Advent. In 2017, Advent is distributed as follows:
- 1st Sunday in Advent = 3 December 2017
- 2nd Sunday in Advent = 10th December 2017
- 3rd Sunday in Advent = 17 December 2017
- 4th Sunday in Advent = 24 December 2017
Some choose to give the packages in the morning, and others in the evening. Either way, children are sure to be delighted with great Christmas gifts in December 2017. On the four Sundays of Advent leading up to Christmas, it is traditional to give children a present. When children get Advent gifts, they get 4 good Advent gifts for children which are usually slightly bigger gifts than if they had gotten calendar gifts. Calendar gifts are given every day from 1 December and then the 24 days up to Christmas. See 24 good calendar gifts for boy and 24 great calendar gifts for girl.
Why we celebrate Advent
The 4 Sundays of Advent is a Christian tradition that has been here for many years. Today, Sundays are known for cosiness and the occasion for Advent gifts and lighting the first candle on the Advent wreath. Originally, Sundays were an opportunity to wait in silence for the celebration of Jesus' birth on 24 December. Today, however, Sundays are mostly used to light Christmas trees around Danish towns and cities, and generally to enjoy Christmas. The lighting of the Advent wreath originated in church activities to celebrate Advent, but Danes really embraced the tradition during the Occupation, when candles and lighting were given extra importance.

How to choose the best Christmas gift for children
When choosing a Christmas gift for children, it is of course important that you first decide how much they should cost. There is a big difference in how much money parents choose to spend on Christmas presents, but the most common amount is probably 5-600 DKK on all four Christmas presents for children. This fits very well with the "middle package" we have shown on this page. You can see it here.
- How much should the Christmas presents cost?
- Is it appropriate for the child's age and development?
- Does the toy match the child's personality?
Also check that the toys are appropriate for the child's age. If it's for a boy or girl under 3, it's important that the toy doesn't contain small parts that could pose a choking hazard. This information can always be found in the information about the toy on various online sites. Also consider whether the toy suits the child's personality.

The difference between calendar gifts and Advent gifts for children is that only 4 Advent gifts are given, one on each Sunday leading up to Christmas In 2017, Christmas Eve falls on the last Sunday of Advent. When you give calendar gifts, you give a gift every day from 1 December until 24 December, which, as you know, is Christmas Eve. Some children receive their calendar gifts in a Christmas stocking, which they can look into every day. Others hang up the presents so that they can all be seen at once. It's different what you prefer.
Good calendar gifts and Advent gifts are useful and fun. At the same time, they are traditionally somewhat smaller than the real Christmas gifts that are given on Christmas Eve. A good calendar gift could be a play kitchen accessory, if you have one. It could also be a fun idea to give play food as a calendar gift, and then a play kitchen on Christmas Eve.
