Advent … and Christmas is approaching FAST

Yesterday, I lit the first candle on the Advent wreath.  And baked some Christmas cookies – which I have NEVER done this early in the Christmas season.  Tonight, on my walk with the dog, I saw THREE Christmas trees lit in front windows.  Everything seems to be earlier this year.

For most of us Europeans, Advent is a time of reflection, marked by lighting a candle on the four Sundays that precede Christmas.  I honor and respect all celebrations that occur during December, whether religious or not, as I feel this last month is a time for reflection on the year that has been and a preparation for the year that will come.

As shop owners, December is also our busiest time of the year.  We try to anticipate what our customers and shoppers might like; what they want for themselves, their families and dear friends.  We definitively get a lot more traffic in our shops and try to make them feel welcome by providing a warm and inviting atmosphere.

I invite you to come over.

Find your Holiday dress.

Find a gift.

Stay and chat for a while.
