Last week, I asked for snow. This week, we've tried creating a Christmassy touch in the house. I took this photo of our advent star yesterday. This morning, we woke up to the view below. It's the same three, the same bench as in the first picture, covered in about 15 cm more snow. It's so beautiful out there, the threes all white, all noises muted by snow. We're all in ecstasy! Hang up the advent stars, bring all the angels, but nothing resembles Christmas like huge amounts of snow. And it's still snowing.
