Advent calendar

Just wanted to share a detail from the advent calendar my mother bought me this year.  It’s German and shows a winter village scene.  The calendar doors are the doors and windows to the houses and market stalls; when you open one, you get to see what’s going on behind them.  I had one very similar as a boy and it’s the only advent calendar from my youth that I remember.  It’s so much more imaginative than the open-a-door-in-Santa’s-beard-and-get-a-picture-of-a-spring-of-holly type we have in the UK (and don’t get me started on the dullness of chocolate advent calendars).

And yes, my mother still buys me advent calendars.  Your point is…?
