One of the bay windows with 24 panes in our studio seemed like a good place for an advent calendar. We painted 1 -24 on the inside of the glass, then rubbed off a number every day and painted (mainly) wintery or festive pictures in its place. Here are two pictures of the window - halfway through the month and then on Christmas Eve.
