Entry # 17: A new door opened. What’s behind?
Quote of the day on CHOCOLATE :
“Life is like chocolate: you should enjoy it piece for piece and let it slowly melt on your tongue.” – Nina Sandmann
Whether you love to celebrate Christmas or not, don’t you just love the concept of the advent calendar as a way to countdown the days ’til Christmas? With each new day, a delicious surprise. Push in a door of a chocolate filled box and revealed is a wonderful morsel. But it does not have to be a choco chunk or one of those delectable liqueur-filled chocolate as the advent calendar treat. Enjoy either of these “morsels” from Marinarena.com from Dec 1- Dec 25:

This post was inspired by a travel office e-mail on Saxony, Germany. Saxony is an eastern state of Germany which borders Poland and the Czech Republic. Major towns within include Leipzig and the capital of Dresden. It is believed that the advent calendar was invented in Saxony in the mid-1800s.
