I am super excited to inform all my readers that I was selected to take participation in this very exciting event “Food Advent Calendar 2017” for food bloggers, amongst the other 24 bloggers from all around the world. The theme for the Advent Calendar is “Spice It Up!” and will feature 24 different interesting recipes from all around the world with a traditional spice used during the holiday season in their respective countries. The recipes will be posted by every respective chosen blogger on a particular date assigned from December 1, 2017 to December 24, 2017. You all are invited to check out each day who is treating us with a new recipe and opens their Advent door for us and treats us with their new recipe to make the waiting a little more bearable. The list of bloggers with their respective spice is mentioned at the end of this post.
Now, let me tell you something about the meaning and concept of Advent and Advent Calendar.
Advent means to be waiting for the beginning or arrival of something and aren’t we all eagerly waiting for Christmas? Advent means ‘Coming’ in Latin. This is the coming of Jesus into the world. Christians use the advent period of four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. There are three meanings of ‘coming’ that Christians describe in Advent. The first, and most thought of, happened about 2000 years ago when Jesus came into the world as a baby to live as a man and die for us. The second can happen now as Jesus wants to come into our lives now. And the third will happen in the future when Jesus comes back to the world as King and Judge, not a baby.
An Advent Calendar is a special calendar used to count the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas. Since the date of the First Sunday of Advent varies, falling between November 27 and December 3 inclusive, many Advent calendars, especially those that are reusable, often begin on December 1.
