This Paper German Advent Christmas Calendar depicts a nostalgic scene of a snow-covered village on Christmas Eve. The village windows glow warmly, wisps of wood smoke curl up the chimneys and the crescent moon & starts shine brightly in the clear still air. The villagers enjoy Christmas traditions; some walk to church while stopping to admire the town Christmas tree, another man brings home the fir tree soon to be decorated, friends head out sledding and a father and his child enjoy building a snowman.
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door hides a small picture.
Tradition of the Advent Calendar
The tradition of the advent calendar dates back to 1851 in the Protestant parts of Germany. The first advent calendar with little doors was printed in the early 1900's and continues today. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 thru December 24 in anticipation of Christmas. A great activity to opened a door a day with family.
