Belated, and a bit of a cheat as it's a photo from today. Mince pies are one of my favourite festive treats, so I bought a box to celebrate 21 years of call and 15 years since ordination.
Celebration is, at least in some senses, the telos - 'goal' or 'end' - of Advent, so why not have a little bit along the way? On such as wet, windy December evening, it feels good to munch a mince pie alongside supping a hot mug of tea. I think there is something postively 'OK' about celebrating cosiness and comfort food!
