This handmade patchwork "Joy to the World" Advent Calendar will become a treasured family Christmas tradition. Begin by opening a pocket each day from December 1 until Christmas. As you count down, your family will pray for 24 people groups, each represented by an intricately hand-stitched 4" doll. Every doll comes with a card including facts, a short story about a typical day in that region, and details on how to pray for these people. On Christmas morning, you can latch all of the dolls' hands together and hang as a garland, telling your children about the coming day when all nations will celebrate the joy Jesus brought to the world!
Each woman who creates one of the products in our store is paid fairly for her work, and any proceeds above that will help even more women in India learn handcraft and small business skills.
The 24 deep burlap pockets will accommodate the mini nations dolls and other fun surprises for your children. Christmas candies, verses about the purpose of Christmas, symbolic ornaments, and nativity pieces make excellent pocket stuffers as well.
- Approximately 27" x 60". Fits on a standard door wreath hanger and folds for easy storage.
- Calendars and doll may vary slightly from the photo shown.
- Dolls and cards may pose a choking hazard for children under the age of 3.
