This German advent calendar Christmas Card shows a woodland Christmas festival with elves and angels. A sleigh bearing Christmas gifts drawn by a handsome reindeer stops deep in the forest and in the middle of a festive scene. Angels fly above the glowing Christmas tree hanging gingerbread and bell garlands. Elves inspect the treats, toys and presents while curious bunnies watch and birds partake of the goodies. An owl and crow in the trees watch as the merry scene unfolds.
