Taste: Advents Kalender Tee. For the duration of Advent, my morning cuppa will be a surprise! I love Advent Calenders, but not the sickly sweet chocolate candy that comes in them. Here in Wiesbaden I had quite a selecion: standard milk chocolate, beautiful paper ones, marzipan, dark chocolate, Christmas ornaments, even Lego!
See: Nativity scenes all around town, but especially my awesome magnetic nativity scene from Prague (normally the Three Kings are farther away, and Jesus isn't there yet... It's the Spanish in me).
Hear: Pfffrrrehff as I peel open a fresh, juicy clementine. Good things come in small, orange packages.

Feel: Anticipation as the countup to the celebration of Jesus' birth begins!
