Advent Day 17

Thursday, December 17, 2015

Happy Advent Season, My Lovelies!  This year on my Advent Calendar I want to share Christmas traditions from around the world along with a daily scripture reading.

In the Czech Republic, unmarried women stand in front of doors facing away from them.  They throw a shoe over their shoulder, and if it lands with the toe pointing towards the door, then they will be married within the year!

Jeremiah 31:31

31 “The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
    “when I will make a new covenant
with the people of Israel
    and with the people of Judah."

Until next time...

  1. We have a friend who toured the Czech Republic ... he packed a backpack and off he went. He brought me back a lovely doll. And amazing stories of his adventures.
    I am enjoying this so much. Thank you for all the work you put into it.
    Merry Christmas,
