What Is A Fontanini Advent Calendar

A Fontanini Advent calendar is a very specific type of calendar that many people follow. It represents the Advent that many Catholics celebrate. This is the period in December at the beginning of the month to the days until Christmas the calendar represents. Fontanini makes these out of wood and they are lines up in a row, normally in four rows of six boxes that represent each day before Christmas. They can be elaborately designed or simple with Christmas and Christian themes adorning their form. This is not your average calendar, but something that is both a decoration and a way in which you can celebrate the Advent.

A Fontanini Advent calendar can be found online in great abundance of style and theme. These are normally associated with the days in which you count down the days in December until Christmas Day and the birth of Christ. These are used to place a small offering in each box representing a day if you wish. Many offerings include most notably small flowers or leaves. Some people like to use evergreens because they correspond with the Advent wreath that is also a common tradition used to celebrate this time of the year as well.


A Fontanini Advent calendar is a unique way in which you can bring new meaning to the Advent while also decorating for the holidays. The themes that are normally painted onto these Advent calendars are of course Christmas and Christian related. You can find images that range from the nutcracker, to the nativity scene, to even something as simple as a Christmas tree. These calendars are usually horizontal but some are stacked so that they are vertical, but still holding the same amount of boxes. The twenty-four boxes are each representative of the days in Advent.


When you buy a Fontanini Advent calendar, you can be sure that it is going to last for many years to come during your Advent celebrations. These gifts are truly one of a kind and remarkable. The craftsmanship is truly excellent quality and the wooden calendars are hand painted. This ensures that the calendar that you buy is going to be truly unique to your celebration of the Advent when it comes around each year. You can choose to light candles for each day of the Advent or you can simply place an offering or piece of scripture inside each box if you wish during this time of waiting.


A Fontanini Advent calendar is a truly unique and lovely way that you can celebrate the Advent each year. Some people prefer to use these calendars with or in replace of the Advent wreath. But whatever way you choose to celebrate the coming and birth of Christ is up to you. Finding one of these treasures hand painted wooden calendars is your best option if you’re looking to add one to your collection. The time of Advent is a marker in the days in which Christ is worshipped. Adding a modern approach to the tradition can make the experience more personal.
