The Significance of The Advent Calendar

Before diving into the toys and gifts, here’s a little refresher about the Advent season.

Advent is a time of anticipation for many Christians. It celebrates the nativity of Christ on the 25th as well as the days leading up to it. It comes from the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming.” While that surmises the gist of it, Advent is filled with a rich history.

During the 4th and 5th centuries in Spain and Gaul, Advent held more meanings, such as:

  • The time of baptism for newly turned Christians during Epiphany 
  • The celebration of God’s incarnation represented by the Magi visiting Baby Jesus
  • Jesus’s first baptism in the Jordan River by John the Baptist.
  • Jesus’s first miracle at Cana

Today, the Advent season lasts four Sundays leading to Christmas. This annual celebration remembers how the Israelites, in exile and waiting, held hopes of the coming of their Messiah. In the same way, the present Church looks in anticipation for Christ’s coming. This is represented by the holy Advent hymn “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” that is proclaimed and sung during this special season.

Whether your child understands the value of Advent, let them celebrate with you with these toys.
