We LOVE the Christmas story! Which is why we created The Christmas Cabinet! The Christmas Cabinet is an Advent Calendar that creates a nativity scene. It is an heirloom that can be passed from generation to generation, creating Christmas memories that will last a lifetime and beyond.
Starting December 1, open each day’s numbered drawer, one per day until December 24th, Christmas Eve. Each drawer holds a figure that represents the Christmas story, everything from genuine frankincense to the reproduction of a Roman statue of Caesar Augustus, Kind Herod, as well as angels, little lambs, and even John the Baptist and his parents, Zechariah and Elizabeth. Read the story on the bottom of the drawer or from the included book. Arrange the 25 figures from the drawers to complete your own nativity scene and watch the greatest story ever told unfold!
Don’t worry if you lose one of the figures, you can order a replacement part in our Shop.

The Christmas Cabinet is an Advent Calendar that creates a nativity scene. Starting December 1, open each day’s numbered drawer. Read the story on the bottom of the drawer (or use the booklet). You may want to open the drawers with your family each night after dinner and discuss the questions from this book. You may even decide to look up the Bible verses included in each reading to learn more about the stories.
Use the figures from the drawers to complete your own nativity scene. When arranging the figures, consider placing the angels on top of the cabinet or hanging the star and heavenly host from a drawer knob. Be sure to put Bethlehem under the star! The underside of each figure is numbered so that you can return the figures to the proper drawer for use nest Christmas.
We would love to hear from you.
