Welcome Advent With Us!

Do you have an Advent calendar?  A few years ago a dear friend sent us an online Advent calendar as a gift, and ever since, we are hooked!  The scene below is from said calendar; this year, it is set in Edinburgh.  The fun starts tomorrow!

And how about it, do you fast in any way, shape or form in the four weeks leading up to Christmas?  In any case, we have just under a month to go until the Winter Solstice and Christmas: Enjoy the darkest, lightest weeks of the year!

      1. i have done caffeine fasts before, and after the first day or two of significant headaches, it works out fairly well. To be honest, it worries me that my body reacts so strongly to the absence of caffeine, so I feel all the more need for somewhat regular abstinence from it… As in, it’s good not to be dependent on substances, legal or otherwise.
