Christmas Advent and Nativity Sets Traditions make Christmas what it is, bringing a sense of history and family ritual together for one very magical time of year. At Lakeland, we love a tradition, and nowhere shows it more than our 2019 advent and nativity collection. Advent means ‘coming’ in Latin and is the name given to the four weeks many Christians spend preparing for the anniversary of Christ’s birth. This can be celebrated with calendars, candles and a traditional nativity scene. Our calendar designs include delicious chocolate and playful Plasticine models, and an everlasting wooden advent calendar is waiting to be filled with gifts. Create instant atmosphere with our Christmas candles including a traditional advent style, ready for burning down one level a day. Make new traditions with a unique nativity set, beautifully crafted from olive tree wood grown in Bethlehem - it makes a stunning focal piece to your festivities. Talking of decorations, our Christmas shop has lights and decorations of all styles and specs. Innovative cracker ideas will give the day a twist, while table decorations will keep the theme flowing through all parts of the house.
