Exceptionally forgetful people live in an isolated village somewhere in Norway. Little Elise, for example, cannot remember whether she is seven, eight, or even nine years old. Almost every night, her dad forgets where his bed is, and he sometimes sleeps in the pantry. Aunt Maya, an inventor, cannot remember in the evening what she created in the morning, and a neighbour regularly falls from the first floor into a snow bank because he does not remember that his house no longer has a balcony. No wonder, the villagers also forget all the holidays. Even the most beautiful and cosy one of the year: Christmas. When Elise wakes up on 24 December and tears off the calendar sheet, she has the strong feeling that this must be a special day. By chance, she discovers a dusty, wooden Advent calendar in the attic, with the numbers one to twenty-four and “Merry Christmas” written on it. Elise quickly runs to carpenter Andersen living in the neighbouring village to find out what this “wooden thing” is all about.
