Background: The German Advent Calendar

Germany’s Advent calendar continues to grow in popularity wherever in the world you might find children counting down the days to Christmas. Indeed, Christmas is not only a national holiday in Germany, but also a season. Christmas time begins slowly, creeping in from mid-autumn, with the occasional spotting of decorative stars and snowflakes hanging in retail store windows. By December, shopping districts of cities and towns are fully-decorated with shiny ornamented Christmas trees, colorful presents, Santa Claus images, and fully-glowing from LED light strings wrapping around the storefronts and lampposts.

It can positively infect one with a lingering case of the Christmas spirit that keeps a smile on your face. (Apparently even when paying bills with your phone.) Who can blame children at home for frequently singing classic Christmas songs, or frequently discussing and revising their gift wish lists? Today, as had been the case for over 100 years ago, children enthusiastically count the days in December until Christmas Day on the 25th.

The Advent calendar has a design to cheer on the countdown. The first Advent calendar is attributed to German protestants in the 19th century, as a way for religious families to mark this period of Advent. The calendar grew in sophistication and design over the decades. Currently, a common form looks something like a box of mixed chocolates. The calendar package typically has one side showing several tiny doors or windows that are numbered to represent the first 24 days of December. One opens one compartment per day and receives the candy, small toy, or other surprise packed inside the space.

The ALM Advent calendar (especially via this blog) can’t quite provide something like holiday chocolates, but rather small nuggets of ALM future-planning information, with which we wish you and your business happy holidays and a successful new year!
