    General Information

    Minimalist, striking, multifunctional.

    These three words succinctly but accurately describe the Wichernkranz made of 3.5 mm thick steel. Its minimalist design makes it a striking eye-catcher in any room or environment. Its multifunctionality even results on three levels: You can use it outdoors as well as indoors, hang it from the strong sisal cord or even stand it up, decorate it exclusively with tea lights and candles or with other ornaments such as twigs and flowers.
    The candle joint accepts standard commercial size tealights as well as candles up to 4.5 inches in diameter. If you hang the Wicker Wreath, other decorative elements, for example Christmas stockings, can be attached to the four hooks of the "feet". Outdoors, the oiled steel will develop a natural patina over time, further enhancing its striking appearance.

    Looking back: an overview for the long term

    The Advent calendar in its original form - that is the Wichernkranz. We owe its invention to the Hamburg theologian and social pedagogue Johann Hinrich Wichern (1808 -1881). Together with Hamburg citizens, he had founded the Rauhe Haus, a kind of children's rescue village, in which he took care of poor children with behavioral problems.
    Of course, Wichern was also constantly confronted with the question of his protégés during Advent: How long until Christmas? To give the children an easy overview, in 1839 he converted an old wagon wheel into a wooden wreath with 20 small and four large candles. From this, the children could easily count for themselves how many days were left before the presents were given. In the course of time, the Wichern wreath developed into the Advent wreath as we know it today: with four candles for the Sundays of Advent.
