While waiting for Santa Claus to arrive at your house, open a window each day of Advent and discover what is keeping him busy with this colorful, interactive Advent calendar. Santa goes bowling, and he plows the snow. Santa visits the tailor, and he performs on stage. Santa and his reindeer visit the beach, and they go for a ride on a merry-go-round. An elaborate, dramatic pop-up construction makes for the most special celebration of the holiday season. The whimsical Santa portraits featured underneath each of the 24 windows are details from vintage greeting cards by famed illustrator Barney Tobey, whose work has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum and is in its collection. The central inviting Christmas scene is based on an illustration by Catherine Barnes, another well-known mid-twentieth century artist.
