This beautifully detailed large advent calendar depicts Rothenburg, Germany at Christmas. The historic buildings frame a scene of the Weihnachtsmarkt with a Christmas tree vendor. Children sled, have snowball fights and enjoy the festivities. A man holds a sign advertising horse drawn sleigh rides. A large banner reads "Rothenburg ob der Tauber" (over the Tauber River).
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 thru December 24. Children love to open a door a day as they count down to Christmas.

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.
