The Darkness: Vicious Traditions - Ales Kot

I wasn't crazy about this.   Maybe I just didn't see the point, or maybe The Darkness is just too dark for me right now.   (Although I did like the next Darkness book better.)

 

Then again, I probably should have known that The Darkness and Visigoths would have gotten kinda dark and maybe I should have even know it would have been a big pointless.

24 Festive Tasks: Door 13 - Advent, Task 2 (Holiday Traditions)

I don't actually have one single favorite holiday tradition -- to me the holidays are pretty much a multi-faceted package, and each one of the components is equally important; everything from Christmas decorations (even if I haven't put up any this year -- but at least my mom did), candles, and Christmas cookies to the way we traditionally spend Christmas Eve (church, gift giving, sausages and potato salad for dinner, and nonstop favorite holiday movies after that) and taking time to relax and unwind on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.  I've come to realize over the years that being at home for Christmas really matters to me as well -- I've had some nice Christmases elsewhere, too, but none has even come close to the extra element of comfort and relaxation that doing "all the old familiar things" at home seems to provide.

24 Festive Tasks: Door 17 - St. Lucia's Day, Task 4 (Gävle Goat)


The 2009 edition of the Gävle goat
(images collected when compiling the St. Lucia's Day tasks)

 

Ever the optimist, I'm guessing the Goat has survived / will survive this year.  IIRC, it did last year as well -- hopefully that means they've finally learned how to keep the vandals in check!
