The tradition of Advent
In France, it’s a tradition related to the Nativity of Jesus, celebrated on December 25, and to the Catholic liturgical year.
Advent (Adventus) is the period of four weeks beginning on the 4th Sunday before Christmas. The children’s Advent calendar is a nineteenth-century German custom whose purpose is to keep children happy before Christmas, as today.
Originally, they were pious images, then they became cards with several pages ... before turning into calendar cardboard with small windows, crafted by the family father.
In the twentieth century, chocolates replace images and the principle of the advent calendar is spreading around the world. Today, there are all kinds, but the most popular are calendars filled with treats.
