This German advent calendar with glitter accents depicts a traditional German house deep in the winter forest. Woodland creatures including deer, owl, pheasant, rabbits and wild boar gather at the manger for their Christmas gifts of food. The family dog helps the children laden with gifts and treats find their way home from the town Christmas market. An evergreen tree decked with candles lights their path as their cat anxiously sits on porch awaiting their return.
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.
