The Advent Calendar
The Advent Calendar is a Germany tradition, first used by the Lutherans / Protestants in the 19th century.
It is a unique calendar used to count down the days to Christmas, with the last day on the calendar being the 24th of December.
Typically, it has 24 different doors / gates / pockets / etc with each pocket revealing a little gift for the day.
The 24th of December reveals a special present.
The types of presents range from chocolates, little toys to trinkets, there is no limit to the possibilities.
The calendar can be ‘home made’ by the parents or bought readily and full of chocolates.
