Axe wielding killer on advent calendar

‘Tourism officials have been slammed for featuring an axe wielding serial killer on a children’s Christmas advent calendar.

They defended the move by saying mass murderer Fritz Haarmann was part of the German city of Hanover’s history.

The calendar is already on sale at tourism offices and shows children singing Xmas carols and laughing as Santa hands out Xmas gifts – and the Star of Bethlehem twinkles over the rooftops.

But over the first door of the calendar, a trilby wearing man peaks out from behind a tree with a meat cleaver in his left hand.’
