Task 1: Post a picture of your advent calendar - store bought or homemade.
Last year, I made my own calendar using different kinds of tea. This year, I mixed up tea and chocolates ... and bought a reusable advent calendar.
Task 2: The holidays season is in full swing – tell us: What’s your favorite tradition?
I'm not much for tradition, but I do love a countdown to the solstice, if it is inaccurate because it counts to the 24th but involves chocolate, then that's ok, too. ;D
I also love the official wearing of the "festive jumper". I love a good Christmas jumper, because they are fun and comfy.
Task 3: The tradition of carol singing in the Advent / holiday season is linked to the old Anglo-Saxon (and medieval) custom of wassailing (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wassailing). Prepare an apple cider wassail bowl or a wassail bowl containing your favorite drink or fruit. Post a picture and enjoy!
Task 4: Make your own Advent wreath and share a picture of it. Instructions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWw83CCa2cg
Book: Advent also means “second coming”: Read a pastiche, or a book written by an “authorised author” by the deceased author’s estate. OR: There are four Sundays in Advent. Read the fourth book of a series or a book with the word “four” in the title.
It took me a while to realise it, but Kling's Die Kaenguru Apokryphen is the fourth book in the series.
