Advent Calendars, A Great Tradition
As is so for many of our Christmas traditions, we trace the origin of Advent calendars to Germany in the 19th century. Children drew chalk lines or hung pictures to mark the days in anticipation of Christmas. The printing of Advent calendars on cardboard soon followed, with the calendars including 24 “windows” to open in the days before Christmas. Opening one window each day in December through Christmas Eve, children and adults alike delight in revealing the pictures behind the windows.
