Let's Talk with Cheryl Hollon
Time to Start my Advent Calendar
It’s the first day of December. Time to start my Advent Calendar! I’m a big fan. My earliest advent memory was when my mother bought one for us three kids when we were all under five. It wasn’t fancy. The calendar merely revealed a Christmas image, but still, we were so excited for each day that got us closer to Christmas.
My favorite television image is from an episode in Season 1 of the British comedy, The Vicar of Dibley. She (Dawn French) has a collection of 30 Advent Calendars plastered over every square inch of her living room. Each calendar is filled with chocolate – heaven, in my definition, of course.
Each tiny bottle is represented by a QR code that describes each sample. The samples harken to the seven seas of Whiskey: Bourbon and Rye, Scotch and Irish, Japanese and Taiwanese, Danish, Welsh, and Israeli.
I’m looking forward to a joyous celebration each day. What special treats do you look forward to during the holiday season?
My Paint & Shine Mysteries are set in the Daniel Boone National Forest. My parents were born, raised, and now rest in peace at the Adams Family Cemetery in Wolfe County, Kentucky. The characters spend much time preparing traditional southern meals and creating moonshine cocktails. Please consider buying locally. Independent bookstores need your help during this challenging time. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B088WYF8QV
