A fresh take on the traditional style advent calendar with doors, this tear off calendar not only reveals a new picture to enjoy each day, but each of the 24 pictures can be torn off and mailed as a postcard!
Each Christmas postcard features a different work of art from illustrator Eva Melhuish. All are atmospheric motifs of the charming Nisse, also known as Tomte or Christmas elves. The Nisse are out and about with their animal friends, frolicking through the snow, enjoying the tranquility of a winter night and preparing for Christmas. Warm lights illuminate the dreamy natural night landscapes.
Turn or tear off a page each day from December 1 thru December 24, enjoy the artful illustrations and if you wish, pass along joy of the season by mailing a note to a friend or relative.
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 continues today.
