Help Me...What is this called?

When I was kid, we always had this thing we pulled out in December. It was a big felt Santa with little numbered pockets for 24 days. It also had 24 felt items (a snowman, a candy cane, an ornament, etc) that you put into the pockets. You put one in each day of December to count down till Christmas.
I would like to buy one for my brother and sister in law for Christmas this year, so that my niece can use it next year. However, I have no idea what it is called or how to look for online...I have looked in stores, but apparently they aren't too common, at least around here.

yep! advent calendar.

i have one, not like yours though. it's all made from wood, and framed. there is a wreith in the middle, and 24 little boxes underneath and each box has a wooden ornament that you take out and put on the wreith.
