The Advent Calendar has been part of the Finnish Christmas for seven decades. Finnish guides brought the calendar tradition to our country from Sweden in 1947. Thereafter, the Advent Calendar of the Guides and Scouts of Finland has appeared every year. Over the decades, it has gained a permanent place in the Christmas traditions and hearts of Finns.
The Advent Calendar of the Guides and Scouts of Finland is an important source of funding for Finland’s approximately 750 scout troops. For the Guides and Scouts of Finland to be available to everyone in the future as well, we carry out determined work to keep the hobby fees low. With the proceeds of the advent calendars, the Guides and Scouts of Finland are able to, for example, purchase camping equipment for their camps and excursions, offer lower camp fees or renovate their sailing boat.
By purchasing an advent calendar, you are supporting local youth activities. The sales income of the calendars is put in to the scouts’ activities in full, and the majority is received by the local scout groups.
Thank you for your support!
