Danish Canadian Advent Calendar 2020
This month is all about Danish traditions and a Hygge Christmas because I mean really who couldn't use a bit more Hygge in there life. The tradition of the Advent calendar there is no definite date only that it is very European. The credit of the first printed Advent goes Germany in 1903 the first printed by a man named Gerhard in his early 20's. It all stemmed from childhood memories of his family counting down to Christmas with 24 cookies that were sewn onto a lid and put into on to a piece of carton. He was aloud to eat one cookie a day until Christmas.
The First Danish Julealender (Advent Calendar) was in 1930. This particular year two Advent calendars were created and sold, one with no doors to open but a picture with verses there was tear-off blocks to count down to Christmas leaving the picture and verses. The other was more like what we all see today it had the 24 windows with little unique size openings and treats inside. These Advent calendars were pricey and not everyone could afford them. By the year 1932 people of Denmark had started making there own Advent calendars for gifts in all sorts of fashions.
