Advent calendars have been around for many years and are very popular Christmas tradition in Germany. They were first used by German Lutherans in the 19th century.
Advent calendars are especially loved by children as they can open a window for each day of December leading up to Christmas Eve. It builds anticipation and helps children count down the days. They come in many different styles offering images, poems, parts of stories and some even have candies behind the windows. The ones we carry here contain images behind each window.
All of our Advent calendars are imported from Germany.
