This calendar was printed in Germany, by the Korsch-Verlag Co., near Munich. Founded by Adolf Korsch Verlag in 1951. Carefully selected motifs have been published every year, imaginatively down to the smallest detail, exclusively and lovingly illustrated by the artist's hand, accompanying you through the most beautiful time of the year.
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.
