A traditional German idea. There are 25 doors on the house, representing the 24 days before Christmas and the large door for Christmas itself. Starting with the 1st of December, each day you are allowed to open a door. Behind each door is a surprise. To give it even more of a holiday feel, I added snow and external lights.
