German Advent Calendar: German Christmas Facts
Der German-Way-Adventskalender

Our ADVENT CALENDAR begins on December 1!
Learn about German Christmas customs with our special online German Way Advent Calendar. By clicking on a calendar-date window (1-24), you’ll see a different Christmas fact each day from December 1 until Christmas Eve, when German and many European families celebrate Christmas by opening presents under the Tannenbaum.

You’ll learn about the many Christmas customs observed in Germany and the other German-speaking lands, many of which have crossed the Atlantic. The Christmas tree, the Advent wreath, Christmas markets, and singing “Silent Night” are just four of them. And there are other Christmas customs still found only in Germany and Europe. Our interactive Advent calendar is a fun way to learn all about them. Also see the “Related Links” below for more information about Christmas in German-speaking Europe.
