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 4th Edition of the Advent Calendar Needs You!

One month until Christmas

It is the 25th of November!

Maybe you are skiing or slurping cocktails on a beach. Maybe you won’t even be realising that it is Christmas, or you might already trying to figure out how to sweeten your wait till the next one.

Speaking of sweetening the wait until Christmas, I have a big, very big announcement to make.

Drumroll…

You know what I am talking about right? I know you do! Continue reading “Christmas is nearing!”

Day 10 | Advent Calendar Today was meant to be for a guest, someone had come forward and asked that I reserve the 10th of December in the Calendar for their contribution. Sadly the contribution has not arrived. Thus I am improvising and providing a link to one of the Advent Posts I wrote for last year’s calendar. A German Christmas Most of my blog’s … Continue reading ? | Day 10 | Advent Calendar 2016
