The 2013 Advent Calendar is really a let down. Some of the tasks are so twee, even one's maiden aunt would struggle to get excited. Laying a table?Dressing a figure in a paper outfit? Filling a vase of flowers? Cross Stitch? Who are these tasks supposed to be of interest to? At day 23 there is still no Christmas tree, the main scene holds little of interest and once inside the house, there are a series of isolated spaces with nothing whatsoever happening in them. The only exception is the Pavillion.
We enjoyed the Alpine Village very much but this years offering is a real disappointment.
