We're almost there, friends.
Tomorrow night we Germans will celebrate Christmas, or Holy Night. I'm sure my godson (he's four) is almost sick with excitement tonight already. How can 24 hours be so long?
I'm sorry this Advent calendar hasn't always been on time or filled with the most original posts I've ever done. Maybe next year I'll start preparing my posts in July.
Yes. Maybe I'll also understand mathematics next year. Miracles can happen, you know?
In any even I have enjoyed this annual tradition. Your comments always make me very happy even though I've not had the time to reply this year. I do read and treasure each one though.
Today we drove from Berlin to our home village in Westphalia. Somewhere in the middle the car briefly stopped working. Fortunately at a gas station. I've not had a car break on my on years and this was quite the luxury version in comparison. After 45 minutes and some miracle operation the car-repair-man did it drove us home, safe and sound.
Tomorrow will be a whirlwind of last minute preparations (not to my siblings: I've wrapped most of our presents already! Believe it or not. And spare me the sarcasm, Hanna), makeup, dressup, church singing, family dinner, song singing, tree decorating... and a million other things.
Today I wanted to show you this video. It took me four times before I could watch this without crying. Singing really gets to me.
Merry! Only a couple of hours to go!
LeeAnn and Inga, you won the Advent gifts number 21 and 22. Would you write me an email with your addresses, please?
For all the rest of you: Two more days, two more chances to win a little advent gift. Just leave a comment on this and tomorrow's post.
