I love the Advent season. As an exchange student in Germany, I celebrated Advent for the four Sundays before Christmas with afternoon tea, cookies, conversation, laughter and candlelight. It was a magical celebration and I have continued the tradition with my own family.
You can share this tradition with your students easily thanks to Deutsche-Welle. They offer a digital Advent calendar on their website. Each day you will have access to a new item. Today, I was able to read a bit about the history of Advent in Spanish on the digital Advent calendar.
