Embassy Advent Calendar 2013

Now that Thanksgiving has past, it is time for the holiday season to get underway.  Of course people and stores have gotten into the holiday spirit before Thanksgiving, but one thing that holds off every year is the longtime tradition of the advent calendar.

The advent calendar has been a holiday favorite in Germany for years, and more recently in U.S. homes.  While the best calendars hide away a tasty chocolate behind each door, there are always the calendars catering to those who want to watch their figure during the holidays, or just want to learn something new.  That is what the German Embassy is providing with their online advent calendar.

Every year this interactive advent calendar offers a new surprise each day.  Behind every door you will discover a variety of German music, recipes, stories, and crafts that showcase the German Christmas traditions.  This year the Embassy is also throwing in a few surprise games to add to the online fun.

Head on over to the German Embassy advent calendar found in the source link below to get started and make sure you bookmark it so you don’t miss what they have in store for you leading up to Christmas!
