WL說“Advent”是德國的傳統之一,當地人十二月的第一天就開始倒數迎接聖誕。

而Advent Calendar也是其中一個傳統習俗,小朋友們每一天都滿懷期待,打開“日曆”上的小格子,看看究竟隱藏著甚麼神祕“禮物”。每天只能打開一個格子…每一天都有一份“神祕禮物”…

我喜歡這份讓人每天都充滿希望的禮物!只是,WL忘了提醒我,如今的Advent Calendar都藏著糖果或巧克力,由於沒有把我的Advent Calendar放在冰箱,裡頭的巧克力都被太陽曬到發霉了!哭~~~~

The Advent tradition is a religious celebration in preparation for the arrival (or “advent”) of the Christ Child (das Christkind) on his “official” birthday, the 25th day of December. The Advent season and its celebration have changed over the years from a more serious, somber character (including giving up things, as for Lent) to one of a more joyous nature — including such treats as chocolate-filled Advent calendars. The four weeks leading up to Christmas Eve are a happy time—at least for those not too caught up in the increasingly hectic and commercial aspects of this time of the year.

The Advent or Christmas calendar began as a plain card with paper backing. On the face were 24 windows, that when opened revealed various Christmas symbols and scenes. These windows or small doors were to be opened, one each day, over the 24 days leading up to Heiligabend or Christmas Eve. The largest window is still reserved for December 24th and usually offers a view of the Nativity.

Today the most popular version of this calendar is the candy-filled variety. Instead of mere pictures, the windows open to reveal pieces of chocolate shaped to resemble stars, fir trees, and other Christmas symbols.

    Finally, let_s talk about how to train the
    lower body. The vital purpose in this text
    is measurement, materials to use and varieties of ramp for various varieties of shed.
    Your preparedness and your ability to rise up to challenges would also be honed if you apply
    the trial and error method in learning how to build
    an app.

    Ho!! My Advent Calender. And I actually do have some questions for you if it’s
    allright. Could it be just me or does it seem like some of the remarks look as if they are left by
    brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing
    at additional places, I’d like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
    Would you make a list of the complete urls of your social sites like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?

    The Internet is full of companies that promise to provide legitimate home based jobs for mothers, but
    too many can’t deliver the goods. You find them in newspapers, radio and don’t forget TV plus the web.
    Think of the successful off line businesses such as Mc
    - Donalds, Tim Hortons or Subway.
