The Advent calendar is used to count down the days of Advent (the period of preparation for the celebration of the nativity of Jesus) in anticipation of Christmas. Its use was a practice started by German Lutherans as early as the beginning of the 19th century.
As a German Lutheran, I would like to continue this practice. Starting December 1st I will be activating a link each day, thru December 25th, on the below advent calendar of Santa Claus. When you click on the link, you will be taken to an antique or vintage Christmas postcard I have listed in my store, Remember When Vintage Postcards. Purchase is nice, but not required. I only ask that you enjoy each Christmas postcard as it is revealed. (intro courtesy of my ’2009 advent calendar blog post)
