Great idea - just who eats the chocolate :)

I have an "Advent" Candle which I light each day and have done for some years now.

Although the goodies behind the doors are a miss I must admit...

Der Weg führte meine beiden Jüngsten heute morgen direkt zu den Kalendern. Ich find das so schön, wie sie sich freuen und nun das Tagezählen beginnt :O)))

We have advent calenders here. Our family does not do Christmas, so when the kids get one from phys ed, they eat all the chocolate at once. It must be a European tradition originally. Many people here are descendant of, or immigrants from Europe. I hope you had a good First day of Advent.

What a nice idea and looks like you did a wonderful job of making the Advent calendar. I've never heard of that tradition but it sounds yummy.

As a child, I absolutely loved the advent calendar. We had one every year and I still think they are a wonderful tradition.

We have a wall advent calendar, you take an ornament from each day and decorate the tree on top. Last year I also found some with chocolate, so now my children want that! I haven't found any, though.

MY daughter is always sooo excited by her Adventskalender; she was born in Germany, so she feels a kinship with all that is German!

We have advent calenders here also. I've done them several times with the kids and they love it!
