Today (December 1st) is the first day of the Advent Calendar. This tradition exists in many countries today and many of us have seen the calendars made with chocolate. Most of them take the form of a large rectangular card with “windows” of which there are 24. Each of them is opened every day, starting with 1st and leading to 24th. 
Aujourd'hui, c'est le 1er décembre, 1er jour du calendrier de l’Avent ! Cette tradition existe dans plusieurs pays et beaucoup d’entre nous connaissent ce fameux calendrier rempli de chocolats. La plupart des calendriers ont 24 cases rectangulaires qui représentent les fenêtres qu’on ouvre progressivement (une par jour).


 


The tradition originally comes from Germany and arrived in France in the 1920’s. At that time, each window would have revealed a religious image, poem, part of Jesus story, small gift… The chocolate items only arrived in the 1950s. The goal was to count the days in anticipation of Christmas and to help kids being patient… 
La tradition nous vient d'Allemagne, elle est arrivée en France dans les années 1920. À l'époque, chaque fenêtre contenait une image pieuse, un poème, un récit de la vie de Jésus ou encore un petit cadeau. Le chocolat a fait son apparition dans les années 1950. Le but était de faire le décompte des jours avant Noël pour aider les enfants à être patients.
