Tomorrow is the day when the Advent Season officially starts in Germany.
But today – December 1st – is the day when the countdown towards Christmas starts with our tradition of the Advents Calendars (Adventskalender)
An Advent Calendar has 24 little presents.
Either „just“ chocolate – there are many different kinds you can buy in stores. They have e.g. 24 little doors – one for every day.
Or people make calendars themselves – for their children, parents, friends or loved ones.
And today we open the first little door or present.
Happy holiday season.
