Advent 2022 Round Up

This December the Web-Translations team have been getting into the festive spirit by sharing their very own advent calendar on social media.

This advent calendar is full of lots of festive facts and it includes some of our favourite festive words as well as our favourite festive traditions. On social media, the team have been sharing short videos each day of the doors being opened. However, in case you’ve missed it, don’t fret! In this blog post we’ve collated all of our advent surprises and put together a complete Christmas countdown for you!

So, sit back and relax as we look back over our festive month! Also, don’t forget to check out our other festive blog post exploring all of our favourite international Christmas films!
