Advent Calendars

Gerhard Lang printed the first Advent calendar in Munich in 1903. It showed 24 little doors, which could be opened to discover small pictures or surprise inside. Each day from December 1st until Christmas Eve one door was to be opened for a treat. The practice quickly gained popularity and eventually drew international acceptance. Advent calendars with religious and secular Christmas themes are still popular today.
