Papercraft Advent Calendar Village

The first Advent calendars were used by German Lutherans in the 19th century as a way to anticipate the days leading up to Christmas. Advent calendars come in many forms. This particular calendar takes the form of a winter village. At the beginning of the Christmas season, treats are placed in each of the houses. Then once per day, according to the date on the roof, a house is opened to reveal the prize inside. Photo instructions on how to make your own custom Advent village may be found here.
