    A little more about the Advent calendar tradition...

    Christmas Advent calendars originated in Germany, in the 19th century, when different methods of counting down the days to the celebration of Christmas were used, such as drawing of chalk lines to mark off the days, or the lighting of a candle every night until Christmas.

    The first known Advent calendar was hand made in 1851. The first printed calendar was produced by Gerhard Lang in Germany in 1908.

    Now days there are many forms of calendars available.

    We hope you enjoy making and using our advent calendar - maybe it will become your family tradition!
