The first printed Advent calendar was produced in Hamburg between 1902-1903. Close to 110 years later, a maker from Minnesota, Peter Leppik, has updated this traditional seasonal register and brought it into the 21st century. His 3D printed Advent calendar is available on Thingiverse for all to download, print, and mutate.

This advent calendar has (will have) a box for each of the 25 days in December through Christmas, and a small “gift” for each box. The boxes fit together to form the shape of a Christmas tree.

Leppik will post a new piece each day leading up to the main event for a total of 25 days worth of parts. [via Wired]
