Creating an Advent Calendar for WordPress can be a great way to impress site users during the Christmas season. In fact, we often find ourselves inventing marketing activities related to Christmas to celebrate the holidays and, let’s face it, also to show our site visitors that we are always on the spot.
Having an Advent calendar on your website is also a way to make the site come alive by displaying fun, engaging and current content.
Let’s not forget that thanks to the classic formula of physical Advent calendars we are all used to, having a digital one means guaranteeing traffic on your pages, since users will most likely come back the next day to open a new box and find out what is in it.

How to create an Advent calendar in WordPress
If we think of starting from scratch with the creation of a real Advent calendar on WordPress we will probably run into a series of technical issues that will slow down the work. Furthermore, as often happens, we realize that we have this need too late to start an ad hoc development and therefore there would be no technical time to implement everything.
Thankfully, as is often the case with WordPress, there is a plugin that takes care of everything. It’s called SantaPress and it’s a tool made specifically to have a beautiful Christmas calendar on your WordPress site.
