Even Corona could not prevent it: today is the 1st Advent. This year it really should be the quietest time of the year. Normally I am mostly involved in Vienna’s oldest and largest exhibition of nativity scenes. This year, of course, it was cancelled and so I really have a lot of time – especially because I have already bought all the presents. However, I have delegated a few tasks, such as baking the cookies, to the hard-working Christmas elves. Where would we be without these tireless little helpers. Therefore, this year’s Advent is all about the elves.
