It has become a tradition that LEGO releases advent calendars before Christmas. The first LEGO Advent Calendar was released back in the late 1990s, with fun little creations for each day leading up to Christmas. Since then LEGO Christmas Calendars evolved into highly collectible sets with special minifigures and accessories that LEGO fans look forward to every year.
In the past we used to get one or two LEGO Advent Calendars per year based on different themes (like one based on LEGO City, and the other on LEGO Castle), but I guess due to the popularity of the sets, in the last couple of years LEGO has been releasing three Advent Calendars for the holiday season; one based on LEGO City, one on LEGO Star Wars, and one on LEGO Friends. So let’s check out what we are getting this year! 🙂
