I know that the source of advent calendars is religious too but they seem pretty commonly secular at this point in our consumer societies.
I'm not an ecclesiastic expert, but that was my first thought when this set was announced. Also not trying to start an argument, just thinking out loud as to why its lifespan was so short.
Or the answer is Covid. (shrug)
Plenty of stock on the Wreath and other Christmas sets.
The nearest Lego store to me is shut due to COVID. And even were it to be open I’m not allowed to travel there.

I wish they'd make up their mind and just list it as retired if that's the case.
My mother, who likes LEGO but usually gets either very small sets ($20 or less) or is gifted larger ($200) sets, but almost never buys mid-size sets, and NEVER buys duplicates except for gifts, purchased 4 of them for herself. And she usually doesn't really have a drive to get sets right when they come out, she gets them just whenever she happens to run across them... but the wreaths she got the day after release. Given that, I definitely wouldn't be surprised if you're 100% correct about the popularity of the set. It actually really reminds me of the Ghost BrickHeadz last year (#40351) that was wildly popular and disappeared almost as fast as it was released... hopefully it follows the same trajectory over all, because once they got the Ghost set back into circulation, it was clear they had done a much MUCH larger run to account for the popularity of the set.
Yes, finally retired on UK site too now.
So will probably be back next week!!
I had yesterday got them to put a couple aside for me to collect this weekend, before it was decided that they would close Lego House until the end of January at best, but as a service to customers who had gotten sets put aside for collection, they let people come and collect these sets today and next week, where they are cleaning/locking down the place. That is what I call good customer service!!
I havn't packed mine away yet, but I'm unsure if I should keep it built or dismantle it. It's quite a boring build.
