This special Advent Calendar plays Christmas music when a door is opened. Start a new Advent calendar tradition: Every secret door has space for a tiny treat for that December day. When the door is opened, a traditional Christmas tune starts to play. Plays 12 different classic songs: Hark, the Herald Angels Sing; Oh, Christmas Tree; Good King Wenceslas; Joy to the World; Jingle Bells; Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas; The Twelve Days of Christmas; O Come, All Ye Faithful; We Wish You a Merry Christmas; Deck the Halls; A Christmas Song; Silent Night. Requires three AA batteries (not included).
In the late 1960s, Joyce Byers, an amateur artist with a degree in fashion design, was disappointed in what she was seeing in the stores: aluminum tinsel trees with garish blue lights. She was looking for holiday decorations with warmth that showed respect for timeless traditions and her own memories of Christmas. From scraps of fabric, a coat hanger, pieces of fur and other materials around the house, Joyce created the first Byers’ Choice Carolers. These Carolers graced the Byers’ dining room table that Christmas, and Joyce gave them as gifts to family and friends. A neighbor suggested taking them to a local store, where they sold quickly. Soon stores around the country were asking for Carolers. The Byers team now oversees a team of 100 artisans in Pennsylvania who now handcraft the same creations that started out on the dining room table many years ago. We’re pleased that the Byers family has become such close friends to the Vaillancourt family over the years.
