3D Christmas Gate Advent Calendar
This German advent calendar features panels that fold out to create a free standing 3D design. This calendar shows St. Peter, angels, the magi and Saint Nicholas gathering as they eagerly await the Christ Child at the Christmas gate.
First published in the 1960s, this nostalgic calendar is now being reprinted true to the original. The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open, with each hiding a little 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. One door is opened each day from December 1 thru December 24. A great activity to count down to Christmas with family.
