Movable Feast 

The Sundays of Advent are always the four Sundays before Christmas Day, whether Christmas occurs on a Sunday or a weekday (BCP, p. 15). Since Christmas is celebrated on different days of the week, the dates of the four Sundays of Advent preceding Christmas will vary from year to year. The First Sunday of Advent is never earlier than Nov. 27 and never later than Dec. 3. The BCP provides a table to find movable feasts and holy days (pp. 884-885). See Calendar of the Church Year, The.
