Folding Style German Advent Calendar
The craftsmen at Korsch Verlag in Giliching, Germany have created a stunning illustration with glittering snow accents on this folding Advent calendar. A German church and ski chalet lie nestled on the wooded slopes of the Alps south of Munich. Children ski, sled and ice skate as a glittering light snow begins to fall. The scene is reminiscent of a traditional Alpine Christmas, and is a beautiful sight.
Traditional Korsch Verlag Advent Calendar
The tradition of the advent calendar dates back to 1851 in the Protestant parts of Germany. The first advent calendar with small doors was made in the early 1900’s and the tradition continues to this day. Korsch Verlag continues their tradition of creating beautiful advent calendars with this 3-D folding Alpine scene. A tip from the manufacturer: A burning candle near the calendar will make the glitter shimmer a brighter and give off a cozy Christmas atmosphere.
