Countdown Till Christmas

24 days

Friends,

How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was nice and kind of quiet, “just” the 8 of us, which I realize is the size of some extended families…

I woke up this morning and realized it is December 1st already! Wow! One of my favorite traditions growing up in Germany is the observance of Advent. Counting the 24 days till Christmas (German celebrate Christmas on the 24th) was a big deal and always involved lighting of candles, singing carols, and lots of chocolate along the way. This year I would like to do a countdown on this blog featuring most of my children. I will regularly (but probably not daily) post pictures of them with a sign telling you how many days till Christmas.

I hope you will enjoy it.

In case you are curious what my other favorite German Christmas tradition are.
