During December 2021, Yle Text will be broadcasting not one but two teletext Advent calendars!
On page 831, there will be a ‘live’ Advent calendar by teletext designer extraordinaire Wim Dewijngaert (wimpie3) in the vein of those seen on Ceefax in the 80s and 90s. Contained on a single page, this will slowly build up with new segments added each morning (approx. 12am EEST, 10pm GMT) in the lead-up to Christmas Day.
And on page 832, you can see a brand new full-page design published every day in December. These have been made exclusively for this calendar by the world’s foremost teletext artists – but you will have to visit Yle Text to find out exactly who they are!
As a brief spoiler, behind door number one on the calendar is Polyducks‘ snowman, pictured above.
