This German advent calendar with glitter accents shows a sweet scene of children hiking with their sled laden with holly for Christmas decorations. They are accompanied by the family dog, a herd of deer and other wildlife. The youngest rests his legs while his sister pulls and the setting sun makes snow covered forest glow. Their cabin build in the traditional German style is shown in the distance with mother at the window and father with his hunting dog.
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.
Dimensions: approx. 8.25" by 11.5"
