Considered a fun way of counting down the days until Christmas, many Advent calendars today have no religious content. Now, alongside traditional Advent calendars depicting angels and biblical figures are those whose doors open to display teddy bears, pieces of chocolate, or photos of pop stars. Advent calendars at The Frenchman’s Corner are fun and delicious ways to count down the days until Christmas because each window conceals a different piece of Neuhaus chocolates to be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
An advent calendar is sometimes a card or poster with twenty-four small doors, one to be opened each day from December 1, until Christmas Eve. Each door conceals a picture. This popular tradition arose in Germany in the late 1800s and soon spread throughout Europe and North America. Originally, the images in Advent calendars were derived from the Hebrew Bible.
