Everywhere in Berlin the past few weeks flower shops and markets have been selling these advent candles.
On the 1st Sunday of Advent, you light one candle, 2nd Sunday, light 2 candles...and so on.
The boys have found an inventive way of using the candles.
This is a great bribe tool for getting them to eat all their dinner.....you just need a satay skewer and some mini marshmellows! But be careful the marshmellows don't ignite (although the boys love to watch them catch fire)
