It gently opens doors for doors,
you might think it's going like clockwork.

The Advent calendar, it leads to the destination,
for impatient children it reveals itself as an outlet.

With every day, the great celebration comes one step closer,
even as a child I looked forward to Christmas so much.

When the last door opens, it's time,
the children gather with their hooves, they are ready.

24 times each morning they counted the days,
the parents have chosen the best gifts for them.

The snow falls quietly onto the fir tree in the garden,
while the presents are waiting under the Christmas tree in the house.

What would Christmas be without an Advent calendar?
like Christmas stollen and charity, it belongs to December.
