This German advent calendar Christmas Card shows a delightful scene where toys have come to life and parade along the quiet, snow covered streets at night. A toy soldier rides a rocking horse leading the toy carriage packed with more toys, wrapped gifts, Santa's sack and Christmas trees. A crate of fruit, a goose, a pair of dogs, cookies and more frame the scene.
