Happy Holidays! Welcome to the ITM Advent Calendar.  Each day from now until Christmas, ITM will feature a festive photo for you to enjoy (save, share, add as a wallpaper for your mobile device, etc.).

Advent calendars have been used celebrate the season since the 1700’s. Traditional versions included doors or windows with dates leading up to Christmas, and behind each was a surprise.  These varied from smaller parts to a larger image, candies or trinkets.  In Denmark, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, a daily Yule calendar television show is aired up until Christmas Eve.

Today’s image depicts Scrooge McDuck as Ebenezer Scrooge and Goofy as Jacob Marley.  This scene was featured on Main Street USA in Walt Disney World.  It was part of a series of scenes from “Mickey’s Christmas Carol,” which graced the windows of the Emporium.

Tune in tomorrow (and every day until Christmas) for a new seasonal surprise!
