This weekend is the first weekend of Advent. Just the word ’advent’ makes me think of what it’s all about – the wait. That excited waiting for the scent of the Christmas pine, the wait for thousands of glistening Christmas lights, and children that wait to finally open Christmas presents. For me, Advent is white with touches of gold and silver. White warming fleece on the sofa, open fire and white Advent candles lit in a beautiful antique candle stick holder.
We definitely need white in all this darkness – it gives us hope for brigher times, and makes the Winter more beautiful. I wish all of you out there that celebrate Advent a very cosy and nice white weekend. Remember though to snuff out advent candles when you go out, otherwise inside the fireplace might not be the only place burning :)
