How It Works

Advent Search header

A search for meaning, purpose, and joy. The annual quest for Christmas.

The online Advent Calendar board with 25 numbered windows and doors is our centerpiece and resembles the Advent calendar tradition (link will appear in a new tab or window).

Each day during the Christmas or Advent Season, the role of Searchers (participants) is to open a window or door on the Calendar. December 1 window opens for the Searchers to start the game. It is opened by clicking on the December 1 Calendar window or scanning the December 1 Clue Card. It reveals a Treasure and a Riddle, which is the next day’s key to open the December 2 window.

Solve the Riddle by determining the object described and by hints provided by your Servant (parent or adult). Searchers confirm their find the next day, December 2, when a Clue Card is found near the object. The game continues thereafter with each new day’s window offering – a Treasure and a Riddle.

Note that a registered and logged-in Servant will need to set-up the physical game for the Searchers, by printing out the Clue Cards and hiding them by the appropriate objects.
