Should I paint my front door white?

Seems like a simple question, but I have been struggling with this for a while. I paint everything else in my house, but for some reason I am afraid with this. Let me know!
This is my door today...this wreath shows up nicely, but my Christmas wreath disappears.

    Do you paint exterior doors with a brush or roller? Do you have to take the door off and for how long?

    Yes white door and white side-lites both to match posts. Don't do any weird colors, keep it tailored.

    Did my first idea get lost? Door and Side-lites white to match color on posts. Remove the brass kick panel on the bottom of the door. What color are your two exterior lights, are they black or dark bronze? I would remove the door hardware and match the two exterior lights with the door hardware. You have some brown wood detail on your home so I would paint the exterior lights and door hardware a dark bronze. A white door with Bronze hardware with look tailored and elegant.
