Advent Calendar - December 2

Christmas Fact: Advent calendars are thought to have been invented in Germany around the turn of the twentieth century. Many are double layers of cardboard with perforated windows which open onto the day’s surprise--a picture, trinket or piece of candy. In Germany, homemade Advent calendars were sometimes made in the shape of cardboard houses. Here are some lovely (but pricey) wooden Advent calendars.

Whatever form they take, they are a playful way to check off the days between December 1st and 25th.

And now, if you just can't get enough of Advent Calendars, Ian's Messy Desk has lots more linked here .
