It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… everywhere you look… well, almost! I’ve started decorating here and there a little bit at home, but the real decorations (aka the tree) will be set up this weekend!
Just in time for the first of advent (is that thing everywhere?), we put on our first candle this past Sunday (November 29th). In Germany and Switzerland its become a tradition to light up one candle every Sunday starting four weeks before Christmas Eve – that way, on Christmas Eve, we have all 4 candles lit.
The advent wreath with fake snow (all out of plastic, but looking pretty real!), the small jingle balls, small gold pinecones and gold candles were all bought at Depot. Except for the candles, which I will need to re-buy, I can now use this wreath every year – love it! Are you also setting up an advent wreath and counting down to Christmas? I love this festive season and cannot wait for all the decorations, the cookie baking, all the good food and spending time at home with my loved ones (of course in a small circle due to Covid-19 this year – safety first)!
