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!

The 4th Edition of the Advent Calendar Needs You!

One month until Christmas

It is the 25th of November! And you know that means that in a month from now you’ll be stuffed with nice food, will have gift wrap torn to pieces all over the place (or neatly folded in a corner of the room), you’ll have piles of books and toys and things you have no use for and don’t much like either piling up in your living room (or maybe not as people know your tastes). 

But for now, we are not there yet. Those who celebrated Thanksgiving feeling a bit rounder after the endless feasting (definitely not fasting) over the weekend. Wallets are lighter after Black Friday sales, which have come to countries where before no one knew this event. Last year still there were only a few shops that had BF offers, this year almost every business was participating. On the Champs Elysee, the Christmas Decorations were turned on on Thursday (only to be mistreated in yesterday’s protests, more on that soon…).
