'Tis the Season to Gather and Send Advent Calendars

Posted on October 28, 2016 | 0 Comments

Advent Calendars are a special part of the Christmas season. From December 1 through Christmas Eve open a little door to discover an image or a biblical quote. They are simple and of an everlasting nature (spiritually and because they can often be reused year-in-year- out). They bring us a bit of "quiet time" amid all the hustle-bustle. 

Angels Looking After the Children

All of the advent calendars that we offer come, of course, from Germany. We try to add a significant selection of new ones each year.

Nativity Scene

 and rejoice in keeping as many of the standard classics as well.

Santa and Angel with Horse Drawn Sled

They make a perfect little gift for family and friends - add a touch of joy throughout the holiday season. Find our full selection here - German Advent Calendars .
