This German advent calendar with glitter accents depicts a peaceful scene of a snow covered village in the central panel. The borders in striking contrast are filled with activity. Two giant trees host dozens of animals including hedgehogs, rabbits, deer & birds. Gnomes are also to be found amongst the branches; napping, playing music and giving gifts to the wildlife.
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.
