Dear Thorsten,

I like to start mornings reading emails like this !

I do not remember seing such and advent calendar before; I am sure it can
inspire other teams as well.

Out of curiosity, I tried to click on the first of December to see what
happens.  But December has not started yet ;)  Nevertheless, even if it
would allow cheaters to inspect the chocolates in advance, I would
advocate putting a link to the source somewhere (on the star ?).  That
would be the cherry on the cake.

Have a nice day,
