We began to bake our lebkuchen; “Mamma, let me lick the bowl”. Stollen was my favorite holiday treat with all the pieces of citrus and raisins, especially when Mamma flavored it with almond paste and brushed the top with butter. These wonderful smells added to the festivity of the season.
A balsam advent wreath is hanging in our living room to help usher in the season. Tonight, Christmas Eve, we light our tree which has an angel at the top with sheer wings spread wide. The lights are the same small white candles as on the wreath, only in metal holders clasped to the branches. Some ornaments were hand crafted of wood and some were made of lace with some colored round balls in between. Everything is twinkling as I sit on the floor and watch the lights burn. I dream of all that is good and I feel peace in the middle of a war. I know in my heart this angel will always watch over me.
