This German advent calendar shows a Nisse traveling in the snowy night with a last minute Christmas delivery. The red sided house serves as a dramatic backdrop to the blue tinted snow and lit advent wreath in the window. The warm glow welcomes the little Nisse and his bunny friend with anticipation of Christmas festivities inside.
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.
