Advent Calendars

Advent calendars, which have been around since the 19th century, are a great way to count down the days to Christmas. The advent calendar starts on the first day of December and goes through Christmas Eve. In the past, advent calendars have been done as chalk drawing or even by lighting candles. It is more common to see a wooden, fabric, or even cardboard calendar to count the days until Christmas.

There are many calendars that contain chocolate or even have something that an adult or a child can move from day to day.  The wooden advent calendars can be used in many different ways.
