It was the German Lutherans who developed what has come to be the traditional Advent Calendar . At the start of the 19th century they would use chalk to mark the days to Christmas on their front door.

The first known Advent calendar, from 1851, was handmade, and the first commercially produced Advent calendar was made in Hamburg at the turn of the 20th century. However the first Advent calendar in the form we know it today (with doors and spaces for gifts) was produced by Reichhold & Lang of Munich in 1908.
