Wooden advent calendars

Advent calendars originate, like so many of our Christmas traditions, from Germany.  At the beginning of the 19th century German Lutherans would count down to Christmas by drawing a chalk line on their doors.  This started on 1st December and ended on 24th December, when Germans open their presents.  However, some families decided to light a new candle each day as a count down to Christmas.  Eventually, the first advent calendar was made in 1851.

Victoria of Vibrant Vintage has a German boyfriend and seven years ago she bought him a standard Cadbury’s advent calendar.  However, in return she received  a very elaborate wooden advent calendar filled with the best German chocolate.  Her boyfriend explained that it is traditional in Germany for boyfriends and girlfriends to buy (some even make) a decorative wooden advent calendar and fill it with yummy chocolate or home made treats.  Apparently, buying a ready made calendar lacks thought!

Every year Victoria receives another wooden advent calendar filled with chocolate and sweets.  Last year we used these wooden advent calendars to decorate our stall but were inundated with requests to buy these calendars.  Therefore we have decided to sell some lovely wooden advent calendars in our shop.  Below are a selection of our wooden advent calendars
