DAY#10 - German Village Advent - SPIEL WAREN (a) (Toys)


DAY#10 - Part (a) of SPIEL WAREN (Toys)

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 tenth..........I'm opening #10:

" And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules."
2 Timothy 2:5


We see inside #10 that there is a rocking horse, a train set and a teddy bear.  I guess "spielwaren" is one word but if they are separated the way they appear on the building then SPIEL means GAME.  The Scripture that I chose for today's post will make more sense if you know the translation of the German word "spiel".

Below are a few "toy" posts previously published on this blog.
