A short history of the Advent calendar
Where does the custom of the Advent calendar come from? If this question has ever occupied you, here is an answer.
Christmas used to be a festival that was intensely celebrated in the church during Advent. With the new ideas of Martin Luther the Christmas season got a new, familial orientation with presents for the children. Therefore, it is not surprising that the first advent calendars were created in German-speaking countries. For instead of receiving the presents on St. Nicholas Day, the children in Protestant families had to wait the entire four weeks until Christmas Eve. To shorten this time to the long-awaited feast, many families became inventive.
From chalk marks on the door to whisking, over painted strips of paper to tear off and marked candles, the new custom continued to refine. Soon also the first calendars with sweets came into the houses. From then on, the advent calendar custom quickly spread to many families.
And even today, according to this old custom, advent calendars are hung up in the apartments. After all, there is nothing better than shortening the waiting time for your little and big loved ones and giving them anticipation at the same time.
