Many of the Christmas traditions, including making an Advent calendar before Christmas, began in German-speaking countries and today celebrated worldwide.

Advent is the 24-day period that anticipates the celebration of the birth of Christ. In the 1800s, German Lutherans would count down the days until Christmas by marking each day with a chalk line on the door. Some lit a new candle for each day of Advent, and others hung little religious pictures on the wall. The first known Advent Calendar was handmade in 1851, and the first commercially printed calendar appeared in 1908.
Garland style Advent calendars
Vintage Advent Calendars were made from sheets of cloth with pockets filled with candy or small gifts. Most Advent Calendars today are made for children and reveal pieces of chocolate behind their windows. Also, garland designs with meaningful notes make fabulous Christmas decorations.
Some little bags and boxes include poems, pictures, or treats. Modern Advent Calendars come in various shapes, colors, and design styles for every taste. Cards, banners, and three-dimensional models offer colorful and creative Christmas decorations. Little houses, stockings, and colorful buckets add lots of fun to December garlands.
