'25' was an advent calendar for the city of Hull in December 2018. Using artwork from acclaimed comic artist Si Smith and based on words by author Ian Adams, 25 opportunities were offered to stop and reflect a little in the run up to Christmas.

Every day through December 2018 a new 'window' on our Advent calendar appeared at a different site across the city. Each window retold a small part of the Christmas story and gave a few words to think about that connect the old story to our stories today.

Folk track these down across the city. Each day the new window also appeared on this website and people could follow each other's reactions on our Facebook page or Twitter (#25_hull). The project culminated with all 25 Advent Windows coming together in a display in Hull Minster on the weekend of the 5th and 6th of January.

We hope this brought you some joyful and thoughtful moments as you got ready for Christmas.
