A Brief History of Advent
The first advent calendars can be traced back to the 19th century. Originally utilized by religious families, people used chalk to mark each day until the 25th of December, the coming of Jesus. Others hung festive pictures, a visual representation of the spirit of the season. Candles were also lit, one burning each night leading up until Christmas day. Religious or not, everyone can enjoy the daily gift an advent calendar can bring.
