DAY#18 - German Village Advent - BACKEREI (Bakery)


DAY#18 - BACKEREI (Bakery)

A few years ago, we went day by day through a chocolate filled Advent Calendar that I featured on this blog.  This year, we are going to wander through a charming German village.  Each day we will see how this delightful village gets ready for Christmas (and we might learn a little German along the way).

Just a quick reminder: Advent is the season that begins the celebration of Jesus' coming to earth.  The word "Advent" is derived from the Latin word "adventus" which means "coming".  During Advent Christians celebrate the birth of the Messiah Jesus but it is also a time to prepare for the second coming of Christ. 
Every Sunday during Advent my family would have a private worship time where we would light the advent wreath, sing Christmas hymns and read from the Bible.  These memories from my "Advent Family Worship Time" are some of my most precious and life changing experiences.

This advent calendar is a reprint of a 1940's calendar.  The artist/illustrator is
Richard Sellmer (actually, on the calendar it says "verlag" after his name and that means "publisher", so I'm not sure - he's either the artist or the publisher).

I tried to take photos of this calendar from vantage points as to make it seem like we were actually there in person.

Each day I will open the window with the corresponding number. 
Today is December eighteenth..........I'm opening #18:

"He told them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough."
Matthew 13:33


When we open #18 we see a busy bakery.  They are selling many different types of bread and it looks like a townswoman brought her sheet of Christmas cookies to be baked in the large oven.

Below are a few bread posts previously published on this blog.  Since the window of the Advent calendar shows a braided loaf of bread, some buns and a pretzel, I decided to include similar bread recipes from my archives.
