" The Story of the Lime Tree " Advent Calendar

Advent Calendars

We’re sorry, at this this time this product is unavailable.

This advent calendar is accompanied by the story of an old lime tree.

The old lime tree sits in a snow-covered meadow. In a dream, angels tell the tree of the coming of Christmas and the Christ Child. The old tree does not feel he has anything to offer the child, as he is old and no longer beautiful. One by one the woodland beings and animals chime in with all that they can offer the child. Each day a window is opened to reveal the story and the gifts. 

Each advent calendar has 24 little doors which can be opened from December 1st through December 24th. Children love this tangible way of counting the days until Christmas. These larger advent calendars are best displayed by hanging them on a wall.
