The tradition of marking advent dates back to the early 19 th Century when some families would draw a chalk line on their front door. Other would light a new candle each day, or hang a little religious picture. In 1908, the first advent calendar was made with doors to open.

Isaiah 9 v 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. What would you have been expecting?
This advent, what doors of hope will you open? Let us pray: Lord Jesus, Light of the world, born in David’s city of Bethlehem, born like him to be a king, be born in our hearts at Christmas, be king of our lives today. Amen.
