Happy Holidays! Welcome to the ITM Advent Calendar. Each day from now until Christmas, ITM will feature a festive photo for you to enjoy (save, share, add as a wallpaper for your mobile device, etc.).
Advent calendars have been used celebrate the season since the 1700’s. Traditional versions included doors or windows with dates leading up to Christmas. Behind each was a surprise. These varied from smaller parts to a lager image, candies or trinkets. In Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, a daily Yule calendar television show is aired up until Christmas Eve.
Today’s image depicts tall toy soldiers made of holiday lights. This scene was one of many festively featured in the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights which was part of Disney Hollywood Studios (Walt Disney World Resort, Florida) Christmas celebrations from 1995-2016 (2015 Holiday season).
Tune in tomorrow (and every day until Christmas) for a new seasonal surprise!
