In 1908, the grownup Gerhard, a printer, created the first commercial Advent calendar, twenty-four tiny pictures in the form of a calendar, from his fond memories. Waiting for Christmas tells the story of the young Gerharda story children everywhere will recognize as their ownand teaches us that we must wait patiently as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
