Food Advent Calendar – “Spice It Up!”

November 30, 2017

So excited to be a part of this food advent calendar – “spice it up!”. I really enjoy learning and trying new recipes, and this food advent calendar does that. Starting tomorrow, December 1st., we´ll be going to different kitchens, in different countries, trying new Christmas recipes.

What is an advent calendar? The Advent or Christmas calendar (in Germany) 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.
