Antique Style German Christmas Advent Calendar
The illustration on this German advent calendar depicts the traditional Christkind angels in a non –traditional way. Christkind angels use cars, trucks, and even cranes to deliver presents and treats to children in the city. A snowman on skis helps carry present into town while angels in a horse drawn sleigh bring a Christmas tree into the center of town.
German Christmas Traditions
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 has a rich history of honoring German Christmas traditions, the Christkind illustration is no exception. Manufacturer tip: A burning candle near the advent calendar will make the glitter shimmer a brighter and give off a cozy Christmas atmosphere.
