Short Message 01
Dear Readers, I’m very sorry, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to continue with the advent calendar in the way I did so far. For my region will start a total lockdown on Monday, which means a lot of change for me again. I don’t feel that well mentally in the moment anyway…

5th December – 19 days til Christmas
Liebe Leser, das heutige Kalendertürchen schreibe ich auf Deutsch, weil ich das Rezept von Stollen nur auf Deutsch kenne und zur Zeit nicht besonders viel Zeit habe, es zu übersetzen.
