Task 1: Tell us: What’s your favorite trilogy?
This took some deliberation as the series I am a fan of aren't trilogies. There is, however, one, that I love and that I am really keen to re-read (and the follow up with a re-watch of the fabulous adaptation featuring a fantastically creepy Ian Richardson), and that series is:
House of Cards by Michael Dobbs, which includes:
Book 1 - House of Cards
Book 2 - To Play the King
Book 3 - The Final Cut
They are deliciously satirical and set in the midst of Thatcherism - brilliant and so, so creepy.
Btw, I tried watching the US adaptation and abandoned the idea of watching the series after the first episode. I just can't...it's... really not for me.
Task 2: Chalking the door is an Epiphany tradition in some places, to bless a home for the coming year. Different patterns exist, with different meanings. If you could create your own pattern to bless your house next year, what would it look like?
Task 3: Compile a post containing one image for every gift mentioned / added in each new verse of The Twelve Days of Christmas (lyrics here: https://www.41051.com/xmaslyrics/twelvedays.html).
Task 4: Prepare your favorite spicy dish or holiday drink containing spices and share a photo. Also sharing the recipe is optional but welcome!
Book: Read a book with three main characters; books about traveling on a journey to a faraway place, a book that’s part of a trilogy, with a star on the cover, with the word “twelve” or “night” in the title, or concerning kings or spices.
I read Im Auto durch zwei Welten by Claerenore Stinnes for this.
