The first Sunday in Advent
We celebrate with the Advent Wreath
And the lighting of the first Advent Candle
. . . .
And loading the breakfast room stereo with Christmas music
With the smell of orange and clove from the pomanders in the kitchen
To the smell of the fresh greens of the Advent wreath
It's beginning to smell a little like Christmas at Linderhof.
The rest of the Christmas decorations come later
We are not in a hurry anymore to decorate
Nor do we decorate from cellar to garret
