This German advent calendar, originally printed in 1987, shows a gathering of fairy tale characters, angels, elves and woodland animals for a Christmas party including the frog price, snow white & her seven dwarfs and puss in boots. They dance, eat and enjoy the Christmas festivities in their secret tree house covered in snow. The large room glows with the light of an advent wreath while the moon lights on the snowy forest landscape outside.
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.
