Advent Calendar – 24 Days Tips And Tricks Each Day! Today: WordPress Comment Form Widget

WordPress-Christmas-01

Especially in Germany we have the tradition of an Advent Calendar. An Advent calendar is a special calendar which is used to count down the days from December the 1st to Christmas Eve December 24th.

An Advent Calendar has 24 doors, one of which is opened every day during Advent. Each door opens to reveal an image, a poem, or part of a story such as the Nativity story itself. More elaborate Advent calendars have a small gift concealed in each door, such as a toy or a chocolate item.
