This German advent calendar shows an enchanted scene of classic fairy tale characters and woodland animals gathering for Christmas. Snow white and her seven dwarfs sit at the head of the table with puss in boots, Cinderella and more. Red riding hood brings flowers for the table already glowing with the advent calendar wreath. The Christmas star lights the forest with a heavenly glow. A garland of pine boughs decorated with bells, gingerbread, doughnuts and candles frames the 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.
