Did you know that Advent calendars date back to the mid-19th century? The word Advent derives from the Latin word for coming.
What makes them fun is that they begin on the first of December and mark the days before Christmas. German Protestants use to make chalk marks on door or lit candles to count the days leading up to Christmas.
Today you can find advent calendars in a variety of styles, and you can just about find one for any person with any hobby or interest.
