This German advent calendar folds out to 11" wide with a 3D chapel in the center to form free standing calendar. Originally produced in 1956, this calendar is now being re-printed. The chapel doors (#24 Christmas Eve) open to show the nativity 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.
