“The Return of the Calendar“
“OMG, Advent Calendar?!?”
Yes, Advent Calendar! It’s ON.
I know I said a few days ago, that I am not going to do it this year, but that was fake news!
Sorry for that, but I had this idea to make it a big reveal this time and I couldn’t resist :).
What’s true is that doing the calendar WAS a stress fest the last years, but that was also because I was working a lot as a bar manager the last two Decembers.
Anyway, I did briefly think about not doing it this year, also because I wasn’t sure if I have enough inspiration for it. I mean… I don’t want to just post random things, just to fill the days.
But I also thought that this year especially it would be really nice to have one because many of us spend more time at home than usual.
So I gave it a try, gathering some ideas, just to see how it goes and … it went really well :D.
This year is actually the first year that I managed to prep the way I wanted to!! And it wasn’t even stressful, I actually really like working on it.
So yeah, this year is the first year that I can really enjoy and I hope you can enjoy it as well.
Now, a fair number of you joined only this year and don’t know really know what we’re talking about
What is the Calendar?
Some of you have joined this year so you don’t know the Calendar tradition.
I’ll post one short article each day until the 24th… a little bit of vocab, some fun quizzes and games, a few recommendations, some cultural stuff and more.
That means you’ll get an email every day in December. If that’s too much, but you don’t want to unsubscribe, please just ignore them. WE’ll go back to a normal schedule in January.
And as usual, the calendar is free so also the people who are not members can see all 24 posts.
(If you get blocked, please let me know, then I need to check my settings)
So yeah… happy calendar season!
Oh and don’t worry if you can’t keep up… it’s gonna be online also after Christmas, so you can read it whenever you feel like it.
And speaking of which, if you want to check out the old Advent Calendars, here’s the link to the archive… same link as in last year’s first post, but I updated it with last year…
Link: Advent Calendar Archive (2015-2019)
Have a great day und bis morgen :)!
One little thing… starting tomorrow, the emails will come from firstname.lastname@example.org instead of email@example.com.
That means it might go to spam, because it’s a “new” address. So if you don’t see it tomorrow, check your spam folder :)
Lovely to see this again. Many thanks and have a lovely Christmas.
Danke, du auch :)!
Finally , Some good news in 2020 :) Thanks Emanuel :)
Thank you Emmanuel for taking time to do this again. I love your writing and teaching style.
I’m so excited to begin this advent journey with all of you :)! Although I’ve been a member for awhile, life has been very hectic (even before COVID) and I am now ready to dive in, catch-up, stay with the program and learn german!
Sound great :). Enjoy the journey, man!
Ich erinnere mich an den ersten Kalendar. Ich war da. Dieser Blog hat mich SEHR geholfen, und ich empfehle es allem meinen Kollegen die Deutsch lernen wollen.
Wow, ich freu mich :)!
Danke sehr! Ich freue mich!
Ich freue mich über deine Entscheidung :).
Hallo Emanuel, just a cheap idea, in case it helps:
why not some posts about the numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4…
Languages often have many meanings or sayings associated with numbers, e.g. in French three often means “not many”, 22 means “the cops”, etc.
Wow, I’m not even sure we have these kinds of codes in German. Aside from the infamous 88. Nice idea though, danke :)!
Cool! Vielen Dank!
Danke viel! I was so excited to see this that I did a double take and went to find your last email which said there won’t be any calendar. Das ist eine große überraschung!
Fabulous surprise! I totally believed your fake news…Super joke. Thanks for your wonderful annual gift of this Advent Calendar.
Ein gutes, herzliches Geschenk! Diese Idee ist so lieb, also freut es mich sehr auf deine E-mails. Liebe Grüße und Frohe Weihnachten.
Du hast mich echt getäuscht aber Ich bin angenehm überrascht. : )
Wunderbar und vielen dank!!
Du Witzbold! :D Vielen Dank!
Danke!! Ich mag diese!! :)
Wowaweewah, danke. If it is all too much you could ask for entries from us beloved fans next year an pick the best ones..
:O :O Super, ich freue mich auf den Adventkalender!! Danke!! :)
TOTALLY. FELL. FOR. IT.
I did leave a little tiny cue in the URL of the last one but it’s REALLY hard to notice :).
Beside that, there was NO way to know. Easy “fake news”, so to speak :D
Triiiiiicky. I see it now but you definitely got me good. Best fake news ever!
I actually did notice the URL but didn’t put it together.
P.S. The URL has the word “Advent” misspelled: https://yourdailygerman.com/avdent-calendar- usw.
I know, but I can’t change that anymore :)
Jaaa!!! Ich freue mich so sehr darauf!! Herzlichen Dank, Emanuel!!!!
Wie schön dass das Adventskalender wieder da ist! Ich freue mich und ich erlichte die erste Kerze heute .
