Count down the days to Christmas with the melodious sounds of the season! Our unique Musical Advent Calendar—featuring glitter-enhanced artwork of a beautiful European mansion in full festive spirit—hides a special treat behind the little numbered windows and doors. Simply press on the old-fashioned musical scene revealed by each opening to play a lively 40-second audio snippet from one of twenty-four different Christmas carols. (Press again to stop or restart your selection.) The German-designed calendar features international favorites including cross-cultural standards (“Jingle Bells,” “The First Noël,” “Silent Night”) as well as those less familiar to Americans (“Snow Falls Softly at Night,” “In Sweet Rejoicing,” “From Heaven Above to Earth”). What a unique way to celebrate the magic of the holiday! Oversized calendar measures 20½"x15", features a ribbon for hanging, and includes three replaceable 1.5 volt batteries so the calendar can be enjoyed year after year.
