This German advent calendar shows an elfish Christmas festival in the forest. Two children hide behind a tree watching the magical scene playing out under the starlit sky. Elves shop for lebkuchen, ride sleds, enjoy a puppet show, ride on a merry-go-round and play music with the woodland animals.
Gingerbread, pretzels and Christmas decorations hang from the trees with an evergreen garland framing the scene.
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.
