A candle is burning, a flame warm and bright;
A candle of Hope in December’s dark night.
While angels sing blessings from heav’n’s starry sky
Our hearts we prepare now, for Jesus is nigh.
In November, I got the bright idea that I would make my own advent calendar this year. Instead of being sensible about it, and looking for 24 useful things, as some would, I bought 24 different candies that I either remembered from my childhood or that I never had tried – and wrapped those up.
After I wrapped them in gift paper, I mixed them well before I wrote numbers from 1-24 on the packages.
I have 24 packages that I don’t remember the content of – but presumably I must have thought well enough of it to select it in the first place.
It will be interesting to open the packages at least.
