We celebrated our fourth Sunday of Advent in the last few minutes of that Sunday by lighting our last candle around what in Germany we called the Adventskrantz (Advent Wreath). The photography, you might say, phailed me this year; the wreath is not quite visible. And this posting actually comes on a Monday. But as they say, it is the spirit that matters, not its actual physical manifestation.
With this humble image we send our greetings and best wishes to all who read Ghulf Genes. May your Christmas be blessed—and, as the Germans also say, a good slide into the New Year (einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr).
