This German Advent Calendar Christmas Card shows a snow-covered valley with a traditional German watermill. Children enjoy winter activities - feeding the birds and building snowmen. Another child brings home a package on a sled while his siblings feed the dog and visit with their friends. A man drives a sleigh full of timber as the setting sun colors the sky and snow.
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.
