Hi everybody,

 

I am not sure if many know that tradition in the US but in Germany most children (and many older childs ;)) do have an "Adventskalender".

 

That is a calendar before christmas with some candy (often chocolate) in it for each day in December till the 24th.Every day you are allowed to open one "door" of it till xmas is there. (most people in Germany start celebrating christmas on the evening of 24th, not the 25th like in some other countries.

 

Anyway: This is the digital Adventskalender 2016 from my company. It is packed with funny, deep or just very nicely done commercials from all over the world and the cover art is done with A:M.

 

Have fun :). Each day another door is openable :):

See you

My family also celebrates on Christmas eve.  Sometimes we go to another relative's house, other times we stay home and then go to my aunt or cousin's house Christmas day.

For two years I had a Lego advent calendar.  Each day was a small Lego model that were all Christmas themed.  One was even Star Wars Lego themed.  I still have those models.  :D

Great-looking candles, Gerald!

 

I used to get an Advent calendar from an aunt every year but it would always arrive late about a week into December.

 

Instead of letting me open all the doors of the days already past I had to slowly apportion them out over the remaining days until Christmas.

Don't be fooled by the commercials. None of those in the calendar is from us ;).

We just pick some of the bests out there on YouTube and put them together...

I would surely know if we did a commercial with Jennifer Aniston ;).

 

Only the cover art of the calendar and the calender itself is done by us. Or did you visit our website and had a look at that? (those are of cause done by us)

 

See you

*Fuchur*

My aunt was from Germany, and she gave me an Advent calendar from Germany each Christmas for a while. I loved them! It never occurred to me that they would be digital or that there could be anything behind the door but a little cartoon character or scene. I really like the example you included. That's a very clever adaptation of the format.
