Goodbye Advent–welcome Christmas

540166_460542817338041_666841792_nWhere did the time go – Advent went so fast this year….

P1070598The 4th candle is lit, the last Advent gift is opened

P1070601My last gift was a lovely stitchery prepped by May Britt.
I can see many lovely morning stitchery moments in the weeks to come.
Thank you May Britt, for making my Advent bright and happy!
I am already thinking about what to surprise you with next year :-))

P1070589I have been to Christmas mass at my local church, a beautiful medieval building.
Old buildings are great sources of inspiration :-)

I forgot to post last week’s Advent poem – here goes:

We light three candles tonight
For longing, hope and joy.
They stands there shining by themselves
and we who present are
We light three candles tonight
for longing, hope and joy.

and here is the 4th and last Advent poem:

We light four candles tonight
and let them all burn down.
For longing, joy, hope and peace
but most of all for peace on this little earth
where people live.

I want to wish you all a lovely Christmas celebration,
wherever you are!

Christmas hugs from
