Enjoy a unique advent calendar that helps you count down the days until Christmas. Designed to be used year after year this calendar is made up of 24 sturdy decorative (in brown, apple green and red) slide boxes* sewn onto approximately 7 feet of white rick rack as shown in first photo. Other photos show garland from different angles but rick rack will be white. The garland can be hung from a fireplace mantle, large buffet or bureau, head or foot board, shelf, wall, etc. It's also very cute tied around a large basket.

The garland is hung with the numbers 1-24 facing out. Each December day a box is opened. The roomy 3" x 2" x 1 1/4" can hold several pieces of small candy or gifts/notes. The box is then turned over and slid back onto garland. As the days go by the backs of the boxes will gradually spell out "Merry Christmas!"

*These slide boxes are specially ordered and are made of heavier cardboard than standard matchboxes. A coat of varnish is applied to protect boxes.
