DAY#15 - German Village Advent - BIBLIOTHEK (Library)


DAY#15 - BIBLIOTHEK (Library)

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 fifteenth..........I'm opening #15:

"...knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit."
2 Peter 1:20-21


Two days ago, our German word from this Advent Calendar was Buchhandlung (bookshop), then yesterday it was Verlag (publisher) and since all three windows (13, 14, 15) belong to the same business suite, I decided to pick a word that had to do with books.  BIBLIOTHEK (Library) is our German word of the day.  When we open #15 we see an open book with a Christmas tree behind.

Below are a few miscellaneous posts previously published on this blog - the first one I included because the Christmas tree in the picture resembled the spindly one in window#15 of the advent calendar.
