24 Festive Tasks: Door 24 - Epiphany - Tasks

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).


Nope. Skipping.



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.
