Ad­vent cal­en­dars

Prima (UK) - - Festive Fun -

Count­ing down to Christ­mas was started by Ger­mans in the 19th cen­tury, who made chalk marks on a door and wiped them off each day. The Ad­vent cal­en­dar was in­vented by Ger­hard Lang, whose mother placed a cookie on each day of a cal­en­dar lead­ing up to Christ­mas when he was a child. This in­spired him to pro­duce a com­mer­cial Ad­vent cal­en­dar.
