An Advent calendar is a special calendar which is
used to count or celebrate the days of Advent in
anticipation of Christmas. Some calendars are strictly
religious, whereas others are secular in content.


Today, most advent calendars are made for children.
Many take the form of a large rectangular card with
many "windows", one of which is opened every day
during Advent. In less elaborate calendars, each
window opens to reveal an image, a poem, or part
of a story such as the Nativity story itself. More
elaborate Advent calendars have a small gift
concealed in each window, such as a toy or a
chocolate item.

History

The origins of the Advent calendar come from German
Lutherans who, at least as early as the beginning of
the 19th century, would count down the 24 days of
Advent physically. Often this meant simply drawing
a chalk line on the door each day, beginning on
December 1. Some families had more elaborate means
of marking the days, such as lighting a new candle
(perhaps the genesis of today's Advent wreath) or
hanging a little religious picture on the wall each
day.
