La Virgen Guadalupe - December 12th

My tiny altar for La Virgen Guadalupe.

Diane made the origami lilies years ago and I include them in my holiday celebrations every year.

Join Angie - At Home in Mexico - in her celebration of La Virgen Guadalupe.

Celebrating St. Lucia Day with a recycled wreath and Lucy goodies!

Remember my leaf wreath?  I have recycled it into a wreath to celebrate Saint Lucy Day!

Celebrating Hanukkah with my first ever Challah!

My friend, Avital, who lives in Israel,sent me this beautiful photograph she took a couple years ago of a simple Menorah and I asked her to allow me to share it with everyone today.  Thank you so much Avital.

One of the things I love most about this image is the reflections of the candle flames - to me it is almost as if they are extending back in time - as if they are a connection to previous generations. And check out her beautiful image of Hanukkah street light decorations in her city

Celebrating La Virgen de Guadalupe with Sopapillas, Green Chile Stew and Angie!

My favorite feast on December 12th, the celebration of La Virgen de Guadalupe, is a big bowl of Green Chile Stew and a basket full of pipping hot Sopapillas.  I am sharing my recipes for both. 

We start with Sopapillas.

Happy St. Nicholas Day!

Advent calendar - December 6th - St. Nicholas Day!

We awoke to frozen fog!

When fog and freezing temperatures come together at the same time, everything is covered with a fine film of frozen water vapor.

And best of all - St. Nicholas had indeed visited while we were sleeping!

Happy St. Nicholas Day to all.
