Looking for a different way to approach the advent season and maybe a way to step aside from the busy-ness of the commercial version of Christmas? Throughout Advent, shops and businesses in Haxby are taking part in the first "Haxby Advent Windows" displays - in which on each day of advent there will be a new Christmas carol-themed display in a window in Haxby - which will be there for you to see until Christmas. If you go to the Facebook page, you can find a short thought and meditation about the carol. News of the carol and its location will appear on the Facebook page early each day. So follow our Facebookpage


or simply keep your eyes open the next time you’re in the centre of Haxby. The first window is in Aroma - and the carol is "Joy to the World, the Lord has come"

Also, we have a trail sheet for the Advent Windows for children to complete and hand in at Aroma in exchange for a free Christmas booklet.
