Advent 2012: Door 15

Okay, two BIG hints in these photos: try putting the text of the poster into Google translate and you'll quickly find out which language it is (though likely be none the wiser about what it means).  And while the D. Thomas on the sign doesn't refer to the poet, it seems to provide an excuse to quote some of my favourite lines of his:

One Christmas was so much like another, in those years around the sea-town corner now and out of all sound except the distant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep, that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six.
