24 Festive Tasks: Door 13 - Advent

Door 13:  Advent


Task 1:  Share a picture of your advent calendar.


I know I should have one but I have just not been in the Advent mood, yet, so there is no advent calendar this year. 


Task 2: Tell us: What is your favorite holiday tradition?


This isn't a general holiday tradition, but it has become tradition in my home. My best friend from school and I always try and meet up for brunch at my mum's over the holidays if we are lucky enough to both be in town...sometimes this has to happen over an hour while one of us is one the way to an airport but we do tend to take this seriously enough to have made the brunch happen every time we have both in town over the past 18 years. 


So I guess this is a tradition now. :)


I will try and remember to post a picture of the spread this year. We have fun with this, but usually end up sitting and chatting and catching up, not eating much at all because everyone is so stuffed from all of the holiday food. No matter. It's a brilliant time and I look forward to doing this again this year. :D


Task 3: Prepare an apple cider wassail bowl or a wassail bowl containing your favorite drink or fruit. Post a picture and enjoy!




Task 4: Tell us about an event in the immediate or near future that you’re looking forward to.


See Task 2. We're having the brunch this year as I am going to Germany for the holidays and my BFF is travelling back for family visits, too. 


Book: Read a pastiche, a book authorized by a deceased author’s estate, the 4th book in a series, a book with the word “four” in the title, a book featuring four siblings, or a book with a wreath, pines or fir trees on the cover.


I may not get around to it but I have been eyeing up Sophie Hannah's Poirot books recently. I'm just too damned intrigued.
