“After the launch of our first Advent Calendar, we received thousands of comments from customers, many of whom told us that the calendar had become an essential part of the Christmas ritual for the whole family,” said Mike Hughes-Chamberlain, jacquielawson.com co-founder. “We heard stories of extended families living thousands of miles apart yet sharing the daily pleasure of watching the day’s animation and then talking with each other about it.”
The 2011 Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendar features scenes of London with 25 beautifully drawn animations, a new one for each day in December leading up to Christmas. A few days feature interactive games for children to play; others feature humorous or heartwarming Christmas stories based on well-known London landmarks. Users visit Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, and even take a trip down the River Thames. From the giant Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square to the shimmering lights of Regent Street, London’s historic sites and stunning seasonal decorations will come alive on users’ desktops as they count down the days until Christmas.
