Christmas Critters by Tara Paray | Advent 2018 – Day 16 – 3rd Sunday

These little critters greeted me on a Christmas tree at a senior living facility my choir sang at. It was the one member’s mom’s holiday party, and we were the entertainment. When I joined the choir,  I thought it would be fun,  but when I found out they perform for seniors as part of their mission, I knew I was with the right group of people.

We sang for about an hour — holiday songs and classics by the Everly Brothers and The Turtles. Their smiling faces and loud voices when singing along made this holiday season extra special.

Chocolate Countdown by Tara Paray | Advent 2018 Day 1

Chocolate Countdown

By Tara Paray


As this Advent Calendar blog series gets underway (again! — yay!) and Advent for Christians starts tomorrow, I’m beginning my countdown today with a very special calendar. I’ve had Advent calendars made of paper with little date windows you open. I’ve also had the kind that hang on the wall, felt or some other fabric, with tiny dated pockets a holly leaf inhabits, day to day.

This year, though, I finally found the perfect Advent countdown calendar for me. It’s a tree made of boxes, each containing some handmade and caramel-covered chocolate goodies. Now this is a countdown I can really get behind. Christmas is something to look forward to already, but I’m going to have such tasty fun getting there!
May your Christmas season be filled with decadent delights!
