Advent, Advent, a little light is burning! … tinker with Christmas motives to print an advent calendar!
Do you know how the advent calendar came to fruition? A little boy, Gerd Lang, was very excited a month before Christmas and asked his mother again and again how many days until Christmas. The mother took 24 small boxes, wrote numbers on it and put a biscuit in each. That was the first advent calendar. Later, Gerd Lang had an idea and corrupted the printed Advent calendar with angel pictures. Do you have creative ideas like Gerd? Below you will find inspiration on how to make and decorate your Advent Calendar!
