'Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.'
Not many little windows to open on the advent calendar now, my friends and Christmas day will soon be here. With seasons eatings in mind, I thought I'd share a few delicious and delightful snippets from across the globe that caught my eye recently:
And finally, this year’s Christmas advertisement from Sainsbury’s, which was produced in partnership with The Royal British Legion. This poignant piece commemorates the true events of Christmas Day during the first World War when, in 1914, guns fell silent and two opposing armies met in no-man’s land to celebrate Christmas. All profits from the sale of the chocolate bar, which is discreetly shown, go to the Royal British Legion. There has been some controversy over the advertisement, with mixed opinions on whether it was a good or a bad thing. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this.
May I take this opportunity to say 'Happy holidays' and best wishes to you and yours. Thank you for your support throughout the year xox
And tell me dear readers, how is the Christmas countdown going in your part of the world? Are you ready for the festive season? Will you be travelling, or spending time at home with loved ones?
