In Christianity, the time leading up to Christmas is known as the Days of Advent. The word “Advent'' is Latin for coming, and these weeks are celebrated in the religious community. It’s a time meant for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, preparation for religious ceremonies, and reflection on the true meaning of Christmas. But around the world, children of all ages annually count down to Christmas because they are excited about Santa’s visit and spending quality time with loved ones. Over the years, advent calendars have remained a popular tradition for counting down the days until Christmas Eve.
It’s unclear how the use of advent calendars started, but it’s thought that the tradition began in the early to mid 19th century. During this time, families would use chalk lines to mark off each day of December until Christmas Eve. Eventually, this tradition morphed into eating a piece of chocolate each day to build anticipation and delight leading up to Christmas. By the late 1900s, the candy advent calendars that are popular today had become a mainstay.
With December just around the corner, it’s time to pick your family’s advent calendars!
