Welcome to the world of the Advent Calendar
What is An Advent Calendar ?
Advent Calendar it is a special calendar used to count down the days to Christmas. Advent begins on the fourth Sunday of the month before Christmas, and lasts about a month. So it happens every year on a different date. For Catholics and Protestants, the first day of Advent is even the first day of the religious year.
The origin of the advent calendar comes from Germany in the 19th century. Several families distributed holy and pious images to the children (including a sentence from the Gospel or an invitation to do a good deed) which they discovered each morning in December, and those with the aim of making them wait until December 25th.
These images become more and more sumptuous from the 1850s. They take on colors, gold, silver, relief, paper lace… They are sometimes even edited in the form of triptychs, with shutters. to open to discover the central drawing.
The advent calendar as we know it today comes from Gehard Lang, publisher of medical books in Munich, who in 1908 was the first to market a calendar made up of small colorful drawings bound to a cardboard backing. It was not until later, in 1920, that the first Advent calendar appeared with small doors or windows to open.
It wasn’t until 1958 that chocolate made its appearance on advent calendars.
