While prepping for Christmas doesn’t truly start for my family until after Thanksgiving, we’re probably like most in that we definitely starting thinking about the magical holiday season as soon as the temperatures start dipping. And one thing that always comes to mind is and Advent calendar. The one with all the little doors to open or count down in anticipation of Christmas. Well, there’s an app for that and it’s called X-Mas Calendar 2011 by Georg Rosenfeld.
The X-Mas Calendar 2011 iPad app is a mix of modern technology and the traditional Advent calendar that dates back to the beginning of the 19th century and comes from the German Lutherans. A little fun fact is that originally people would count down the days to Christmas by drawing a chalk line on the outside of their door each morning. However, some would go a step further and light a candle or place a different decoration, thus that’s why most Advent calendars today are in the shape of a house.
