This German advent calendar with glitter accents depicts an olden scene of a village market in Germany. A peddler sells toys and balloons nearby a vendor selling her fall harvest fruits and vegetables. The town Christmas tree casts a warm glow on the snow crusted streets busting with activity.
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.
Does Not come with candy or chocolate. Glitter accents.
