What did the Washington family coat of arms look like? What is the key in the Central Hall? What was Martha Washington's china like? All of these questions are answered in this insightful and fun Advent Calendar. To use the Advent Calendar, start on December 1st and open window number 1 to reveal a small picture. Each day after that, open another window until you reach window number 25 on December 25th--Christmas Day. By then you will have learned twenty-five new things about George Washington and Mount Vernon! A wonderful teacher's aid or unique gift for a history buff. Made of heavy-coated card stock, the Mount Vernon winter scene is depicted from an original painting by artist, Colleen Sgroi. Calendar is 16" x 12".
