Advent isn't the same as the twelve days of Christmas-- it is the period BEFORE Christmas (kind of like Lent is to Easter), and most calendars have twenty-four or twenty-five windows.  Just so nobody gets in over their head ("What? I have to make twice as many windows? Arghhh.....").

Hi, Im from germany (so please excuse my mistakes).

Here it is tradition to give to the kids a calender with 24 little "doors". Starting with the 1st of December and ending with the 24th of December (the day, we give and get presents here in Germany)

Mostly you find chocolate behind the doors, but you also find calenders with a scene and with pictures behind the doors which fit to the scene. I hope you understand what I mean (here http://www.coppenrath.de/programm_detail.php?n1=coppenrath&verlagsnr=1&gruppe=41&bestellnr=1957 )you find an example.

It is very easy to do such a calendar on your own, take two pages of thicker paper and draw 24 (or 12) littel pictures. Than you take the second paper and cut out little windows at the same place.

Glue it together  -ready.

I did one on my own for my daughter, for the last days befor she started school.

Its me again.

How about a calendar made of 24 litte bags? Like this: http://www1.ndr.de/container/ndr_style_images_default/0,2299,OID749462,00.jpg
You can hang them on a string cross the room

Or made out of 24 dercoratet (and of course empty) matchboxes? http://www.kinderbasteleien.de/ordner/projekte/projekt2bec1.jpg

I've always wanted to do one with 24 Altoid tins attached to a board, so there could be a new little present inside each one.  The tins could be painted and decoupaged.  I have no idea when I will actually be able to do this, but I don't seem to have any difficulty emptying the tin.
