Our Advent Calendar

We are excited to launch our very own Advent Calendar - Deutsche Schule Melbourne edition. The Advent Calendar has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it and the relevant word in English and German next to it. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 to December 24. Children love to open a door every day as they count down to Christmas.

A German Tradition

The tradition of the advent calendar dates back to 1851 in the Protestant parts of Germany. The first advent calendar with little doors was printed in the early 1900s and continues today.
