4th of Advent

This morning, on Sunday, December 23, the 4th Sunday in Advent, we opened the 23rd door of our advent calendar …

Advent Calendar

… and that reminded me of our little children’s rhyme [sorry, my translation won’t always rhyme]:

 Advent, Advent, one little candle’s burning,

First one, then two, then three, then four,

And then the little Christmas Child is knocking at your door.


And we used to continue jokingly:


And when you see the fifth candle burning,

You’ve overslept Christmas.


Well, my friends, don’t you miss out Christmas!  😉
