Traditional German Advent Calendars have long been a wonderful way for children and their families to keep track of the days until Christmas. And these German Wooden Advent Calendars are not only beautiful, they can be used over and over again every year. Because they are made in Germany, they have a solid construction, with fine attention to detail. These special wooden Advent Calendars will make cherished memories for generations.
The first Advent Calendar was actually made by the mother of a rather impatient little boy. She filled little boxes with Lebkuchen or Gingerbread for her son, numbered them, and allowed him to open one each day until Christmas. That little boy grew up to make the first commercial Advent Calendars out of colored paper…with little doors that opened to magical scenes. These Wooden Advent Calendars go back to his mother’s original idea… small boxes that can be filled with cookies, chocolate, small ornaments, or even little gifts.
Our wooden Advent Calendar is a forest house, and each door hides a small animal ornament to decorate the tree by the house. This sweet little cottage is a family favorite. But there are so many others to choose from!
