Before the German Christmas gets into full swing, here is the winner of yesterday’s calendar –
Congrats, Andrea. I still have your address 🙂! I really, really hope that the calendar will get to you really quickly after Christmas. The new year is only 8 days away… Thank you to everyone for taking part – but wait, there is one more thing!
The last day of the 12 days of Christmas is here. That means one last raffle…
After dropping hints yesterday, some of you have already been guessing what I might have in store for you… Well, I’m afraid, I am keeping the suspense going…
Day 12 contains the big question mark – or the big surprise box of RAvotionalia… Maybe you can guess, maybe you are happy to be surprised, but that is exactly what will happen – whoever wins this raffle, will get a surprise sent. The contents may be familiar to you, you may have seen some of the things before… But that’s all I am saying.
And as a lovely extra surprise, our fellow fan Eugeal – the winner of a raffle herself – has been in touch with me and offered another mystery prize to another lucky person today. I have no idea what she is planning, so even if I wanted to, I couldn’t tell you more than this… In any case, her contribution means that we have two mystery prizes in the raffle today, so two chances for two winners to get lucky!
In a slight deviation from the usual proceedings I am leaving the raffle open for 48 hours, taking into account that many European readers will be offline today, and anglophone readers are probably offline tomorrow. For everyone to leave their comment as a raffle entry, I will draw the winners on 26/12. Otherwise the same rules apply: To win one of the two prizes, leave a comment on this post. The raffle is open for the next 48 hours and finishes at 3pm GMT, December 26, 2017. The raffle is open to all, and the items will be sent anywhere in the world, at no P&P costs for you. Winner to be announced on 26 December.
And now it is time for Christmas. My Christmas tree is in place. We brought it up from the garden this morning, and hubster has chosen the Christmas tree of my dreams. It is tall, not too wide, and nicely full. This year, the theme is white and silver, because I wanted to give my grandmother’s Christmas baubles pride of place. This year, they are 99 years old… (family lore has it that they were bought when she was born – which was in 1918…). There are handmade things on the tree, too, as well as cheap plastic baubles, or precious glass baubles from a friend. A mixture. I can’t wait until this evening when we light the candles…
No presents under the tree yet… But all in festive mood and happy to be together.
I wish the same to all of you out there – have a wonderful Christmas, eat well, sleep well, give and receive, and most of all – enjoy the presence of your dearest family and friends. ❤️
Lots of seasonal love,
