WHAT IS AN ADVENT CALENDAR
The history of Advent calendars dates back to the 19th century, when families marked each December day on the calendar in anticipation of Christmas Day. The first printed Advent calendars like the ones we’re used to today appeared in the early 1900s, created by a German named Gerhard Lang.
HOW DO THE ADVENT CALENDARS WORK?
It’s pretty simple: every day from December 1, you open one of the little doors in your advent calendar box with the corresponding date and enjoy the treat hiding inside.
