Fairy Tale Castle Themed Advent Calendar
This German made paper advent calendar shows an beautifully drawn picture of classic fairy tale characters and animals gathering at the foothills of a castle on a hill. Children (or even adults!) will enjoy finding the characters in the detailed scene which include: the Bremen town musicians, Hansel & Gretel, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Puss in Boots, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Mother Holle, the man with the Golden Goose and more!
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it.
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 the tradition continues today. One door is opened each day from December 1 thru December 24 in anticipation of Christmas. A great activity with Children and family.
