Traditional German Paper Advent Calendars

In a world of Advent Calendars filled with everything from toys to bath bombs to Beer, there is still a place for Paper Advent Calendars. These simple and beautiful countdown calendars take us back to a simpler time. Each numbered door opens to reveal a sweet holiday image… all the way up to December 24, when the biggest doors of all open for Christmas Eve.

Now, before you write them off thinking… paper? How boring!

Take a look at how creative some of these Advent Calendars are. Some fold around a light, so they glow! Some are houses with opening windows. A few have stands, or are 3 dimensional. And all of them have beautiful images!

The paper Advent Calendars are made from 2 layers of cardstock. There are so many images to choose from! Castles, Children, Village Scenes…my favorite are the old fashioned images of Christmas in Germany! Some have glitter to add that extra bit of shimmer to a holiday scene.  The doors are perforated and numbered, and opening them is easy. Best of all, if you are careful, they can be packed away and reused over and over. (I find that setting them on a shelf, or at the back of the sideboard makes a festive look… and you won’t need to mar it with tape or thumb tacks!)

One thought on “Traditional German Paper Advent Calendars

  1. I never thought I’d see beautiful advent calendars like I had when I was a child. Each and every one reminds me of how I couldn’t wait for the next morning. Can I purchase these in November of 2021 or earlier? I wish I had seen these before I bought my usual silly advent calendars. You have no idea of the cheap advents I have been able to find for years. I can’t tell you how excited I am to find advents like I had 60 years ago.

    thank you so much,
    Pat Bowman
