Let the Christmas countdown commence!

Can you believe it’s December already? I’m sure last time I checked it was August, I just don’t know where the time goes, I really don’t.

If Christmas is creeping up a bit too quickly on you as well then National Museums Liverpool’s latest festive offering may come in handy. This weekend we launched an online advent calendar, to count down to the big day and hopefully get you in the Christmas spirit.

Behind each window is an artefact or an event from our collections and venues with a Christmas link, revealing insights into popular festive traditions as well as historic reminders of past Christmases. So far I’ve found out how the Norse god Odin may have inspired a Christmas tradition and why decorating your house with holly and ivy could lead to a harmonious Christmas – and it’s only day 3.
