WHAT IS AN ADVENT CALENDAR?
The history of advent calendars can be traced back to the 19th century, when families would mark off each day in December on calendar in anticipation of Christmas Day. The first printed Advent calendars like those we’re used to today came about in the early 1900s, created by a German man named Gerhard Lang.
HOW DO ADVENT CALENDARS WORK?
They’re quite straightforward: each day from December 1, you open up one of the little doors in the box of your advent calendar with the matching date and enjoy the treat hiding inside.
