Wunder Kalender 31st – 6th January
By Marian Connor
I was thinking…
This is the final instalment of our Wunder Kalender. Our fusion on a Cabinet of Curiosities and an Advent Calendar.
Cabinet of Curiosities – a room, display or case full of weird and wonderful things, its heyday was in 16th and 17th century Europe.
Advent Calendar – used to count and celebrate the days leading to Christmas Day – or at 8 in the Universe, until Twelfth Night on the 6th January.
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy 2015.
