The origin of the Advent Calendar can be traced back to the 19th Century. The initial styles came from the Protestant location. So religious households created a chalk line for every single day in December until Christmas Eve. The first identified Advent Calendar which was manufactured by handwork dates from 1851.Other early designs were the Adventclock or the Advent candle - a candle for every single of the 24 days until Christmas, like todays Advent wreath. So in religious families tiny pictures had been hang up on the wall - 1 for each day in December. An other tradition was to paint chalk strokes on the door, a single per day till Christmas Eve.In 1902 a Christian Bookshop in Hamburg published a Christmas Clock which was quite similar to that published 1922 by the St. Johannis printing organization. (Dominik Wunderlin, lic.phil. Swizzerland). 1903 appears to be the yr of the first printed Advent Calendar. In 1904 an Advent Calendar was inserted in the newspaper "Neues Tagblatt Stuttgart" as a gift for their readers. In the early days, Bible verses would typically replace the images behind the doors.We know that Advent Calendars filled with Chocolate have been already available in 1958.
