Appendix 2. Advent Dates 2021-2040


Advent isn't just four weeks long. It is complex. Advent Sunday is always the fourth Sunday before (not including) Christmas Day. But because the First Sunday of Advent is a variable date and Christmas Day is a fixed date, Advent can be as short as 22 days (when Christmas falls on a Monday) and as long as 28 days (when Christmas falls on a Sunday).
