IT'S BEGINNING TO TASTE A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS BY HARRIET BRAWNE!
Australia may not experience white Christmases and we do not kiss under the mistle toe or drink egg-nog in front of the fire place. However we do know how to celebrate this silly season, arguably better than anywhere else. We find ourselves tottering between Christmas bbq’s and sighting reindeers frolicking down at the shores of our beaches on 40 degree days. More importantly as Aussies and honourary Aussies alike we know how to celebrate Christmas time in style.
Advent Calendars certainly do set the tone for this time of year. I mean who doesn’t love waking up in the morning and having a golden chocolate coin before 8 am… Traditionally advent calendars can be traced back to the 19th century. Where a candle was lit each day for the 24 days leading up to Christmas. However as traditions adopt new meaning the advent calendars of today create anticipation and a moment of joy between siblings and parents every morning of December leading up to the best day of the year.
The craziness of our hot Christmases in Australia can at times become overwhelming. SO many presents to buy, and wrap with love and Noel, Christmas catch ups, followed by a few Christmas headaches, mixed in with school holidays and the anticipation of the big man making his way down our chimneys is just all too much.
That’s why this year Adixions has created a jolly secret weapon. Adixion’s advent calendar is rich and indulgent, providing a moment of peace and quiet to enjoy beautiful ingredients and a few minutes to yourself. Appeasing the finer things in life the ultimate advent calendar is the perfect way for adults this Christmas to enjoy a moment of pure anticipation and joy for the silly season every day leading up to Christmas.
The advent calendar is packed with six signature luxury bon bons including: Coco Truffle, Chai Latte, Almond Rocher, Raspberry Blush, Mocha Bean and the Christmas Mendiant (My Favourite). All handcrafted using Cacao Barry Chocolate and locally sourced seasonings.
With only a matter of days left until this silly season draws to an end it is important to take a moment here and there to appreciate all we are thankful for and of course to get excited over such a special time of year. As families come together and children start to wonder what their stockings will fruit we pay tribute to Australia, the lucky country. And of course to all the beautiful produce it provides for us.
Merry Christmas & let’s make 2019 amazing,
