2:52pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
AN ADVENT calendar spreading the religious message of Christmas has been launched by the Bishop of Chelmsford.
Stephen Cottrell went to the Tesco store next to the Miami Roundabout as they started selling The Real Advent Calendars.
Inside each of the 25 squares is a chocolate star along with a small part of the story of Christmas.
Bishop Stephen said: “Advent, the time in the church year for getting ready for Christmas Day doesn’t start until Sunday 1 December, but Christmas goodies have already been in the shops for some time.
“I am happy about that because Christmas is worth celebrating - and I am very happy for people to celebrate.”
