This German advent calendar with glitter accents, depicts a nostalgic scene of a snow-covered village on Christmas Eve.  The village windows glow warmly, wisps of wood smoke curl up the chimneys and the crescent moon & starts shine brightly in the clear still air.   The villagers enjoy Christmas traditions; some walk to church while stopping to admire the town Christmas tree, another man brings home the fir tree soon to be decorated, friends head out sledding and a father and his child enjoy building a snowman.  
    The tradition of the advent calendar dates back to 1851 in the Protestant parts of Germany. The first advent calendar with little doors was printed in the early 1900's and continues today.
    This calendar was printed in Germany, by the Richard Sellmer Publishing Co., in Stuttgart. Founded by Richard Sellmer in 1945, it remains family owned & operated, after 75 years.
     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
