I think I can't translate it like that, haha :D
Last Sunday was the first Advent and I chose this heading also because they don't know about the Advent Sundays here or have an "Adventskranz"; which is obviously only a German/Austrian tradition.

Okay, for the end a little quote (in German) I found on facebook and just had to laugh about it, so I hope you have to laugh about it, too.
"Man steckt immer in der scheiße, nur die Tiefe ändert sich.
Darum, wenn einem die scheiße bis zum Hals steht, nicht den Kopf hängen lassen."
