The Swedes love Advent Calendars every December as a countdown to Christmas, which they celebrate on Christmas Eve. My version features an apartment house. Each unique window is a pocket in which you can put a small toy/candy/money every day. 18 windows are the same size but some are larger: the tree out in front, the front door, the attic in which Santa has his work shop, the cat on the roof, the chimney and the Christmas star in the sky. The numbers under each pocket are attached with Velcro so they can be scrambled each year.
And here is a second version of the same idea.
