Advent Day 8 And 9 + Update

Hello all, sorry for the delay in the Advent posts, but I now have a sinus/ear infection making me feel like doing anything, much less write or prepare for Christmas.  Yeah, I know, perfect timing, Right?  Anyway, here are days 8 and 9 for Advent:

Advent Day  8 –  CHRISTMAS CARDS!

I love Christmas cards.  I love shopping for them, sending them, as well as receiving them.  When I was doing a bit of research on this I came upon a blog post that says it all, so now I re-direct you to here.  You may want to consider following Interesting Literature.  There are always tasty tidbits there.

Finding good Christmas cards is a challenge.  They should have color, make you smile upon seeing it, and having wonderful words inside to add your own special yule-tide greetings to.  This means there should also be room to write.

Advent Day 9 – Candy

When I was a little girl, one of the happiest memories is of Daddy or Uncle Bud bringing Christmas candy to the house.  It was always a big bag of hard candy.  Each piece of candy was different and tasted different.  Mommy and I would go digging through the candy bowl to find our favorites at least a couple of times a day.

One of the candies in particular was both our favorite:  It had a “birch” flavor.  This is what my Mommy called the flavor anyway.  It was sweet and almost bitter, with a licorice undertone.  Those pieces of candy lasted for hours.  I remember rolling the candy piece in my mouth and reading raptly forever.   It always surprised me to discover how far I reached in a book before the piece was gone!
