Advent calendar 2010

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 first 24 days of December physically.
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.
At Oil’s house in Kall we used to have an Advents calendar every year, which was made by our aunt Hannelore.
Alex and Bert are getting this Mexican version of an Advents calendar since they are 2 years old and this year Luka got his first one as well. WE had to improvise a little bit with Luka and now I already looked into planning a new version, something like aunt Hannelore did, for 2011.
… and by the way. Susi&Oli have their own Advents calendar, the simple “door-by-day-chocolate” version.
