CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN – DAY 1 – ADVENT CALENDAR

As usual, I’m getting a late start with these prompts, which were to begin on December 1st. So, this is the first one of the Christmas Countdown. It is about the Advent Calendar. I admit, I have no real understanding of this. We didn’t have one when I was a kid. My daughters had one, I think. Maybe once or twice, and that was because they wanted the chocolates that they knew were behind each day’s door on the calendar. I’m pretty sure one of our dogs got hold of one of these calendars, and ate all the candy.

Anyway, looking up the meaning of the Advent Calendar, I found it was started by a woman in Germany. She made a simple one for her son. The word Advent means to come forward, or to look forward. It was why she made it, so her son could count down the days to Christmas, and learn the religious meaning of the holiday.
