Dear history fan!,

In the Northern Hemisphere, the dark days before Christmas have arrived (and dark they are here in the Netherlands with sunrise just before 8:30 AM and sundown by 4:30 PM!).

It's been another hard year for everyone, so to cheer you up a bit, we're running an Advent Calendar on our site across the four magazines. There might be a discount coupon, a video, a quiz, a podcast, or something else entirely hidden in each daily post. They'll only be up for one day, midnight to midnight GMT. The link will be announced via the Facebook and Twitter accounts for both Karwansaray and all magazines. Don't worry, we won't bother you with daily emails.

I hope you'll enjoy the Advent Calendar, and wish you happy holidays!
