Snow by Solveig Werner | Advent 2018 – Day 15

A white Christmas!

How many have I had of them? Not many.

Last Winter was bitter cold, it snowed, but in February (and that did lead to some complications).

For the last few days it has been mighty cold, how would I love it to snow for Christmas. We are almost there. In ten days from today, it is the 25th of December. The Advent Calendar only has 9 more days left (or did you finish off your chocolate on the first day?).

Here are some photos of snow that I took 9 years ago in Zakopane in Poland.

 I didn’t think that I would be the person posting for the calendar today, but like every year it is a bit tough to find participants. Everyone has work/school/projects and often their own blog that all take up a lot of time. Then December is the moment of the year were we prepare Christmas and often have to battle a nasty cold or even the flu. Thus I cannot say how grateful I am for all the contributions that I have so far received and that I am still going to receive. I would also like to thank all of the visitors to the blog (that includes you), some leave comments. 

I really hope that the calendar (and those of the years past) still warm your heart and spirit in this cold season of the year. 

Thank you for stopping by, and if you are wondering I am still looking for 4-5 contributions (stories, memories, pictures, paintings, music, videos…). If you are tempted, let me know!

Christmas Traditions

By Kelli King

I love Christmas music. I especially love songs that make me imagine what Christmas is like in other places. My top places to imagine spending Christmas have always been New York City, London, Paris, some enchanting village in Ireland or Germany, and more recently, I found out that Strasbourg, France, has a very famous Christmas market. these are all pretty exotic places, and I may well spend Christmas in some of them as a tourist in the future. But they will never be mine. My own hometown suffers from a relative lack of charm, so that may contribute to my desire to see Christmases elsewhere. The city I live in now that I’m grown has much more “curb appeal” because we have the gorgeous backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, but it is still neither a quaint French village nor a beautiful bustling city.
