Let the child in you bubble to the top. Advent calendars provide the count-down to Christmas. Advent really begins on the 4th Sunday before Christmas, which means that it starts on Sunday 2nd December 2012 this year - don't tell the children! However, beginning opening the lovely little windows or drawers begins on 1st December for these charming Christmas Advent Calendars.
Christmas Advent Calendars were originally introduced by the German Lutherans in the 16th century. The word Advent originates from Greek, via Latin. The Latin word is adventus, meaning 'coming'; the ancient Greek word parousia referred to the 'Second Coming of Christ'. Bit convoluted!?
