When it is cold outside, there is nothing better than enjoying a nice hot cup of tea. Adagio teas has the cutest advent calendars every year! They always put me in the holiday spirit, as I try each of the festive blends they have to offer.
The history of the Advent Calendar
The history of the Advent Calendar dates to the mid-19th century, when German Protestants made chalk marks on doors or lit candles to count the days leading up to Christmas. In the U.S. however, Dwight D. Eisenhower is often credited for popularizing the Advent calendar tradition. During his presidency, Ike was photographed opening an Advent calendar with his grandchildren and the photo ran in several national newspapers.
