The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

A Literary Advent Calendar

For Advent

Source: Project Gutenberg
This Advent Calendar originally appeared at Project Gutenberg, but had disappeared by January 29, 2010. This recreation is based on some text notes that I made when I first saw the page. I do not know the name of the original author(s). That calendar began on December 1.
