Paul Bommer’s Advent Calendar

December 1, 2011
by Paul Bommer

Christmas is coming,
The Goose is getting Fat.
Please put a Penny
In the Old Man’s Hat.
If you haven’t got a Penny
A Ha’penny will do.
If you haven’t got a Ha’penny
God bless you!
It is my pleasure to welcome Paul Bommer as Spitalfields Life  Artist-in-Residence for December, contributing a page of the Advent Calendar daily and other surprises along the way. From tomorrow, and every day until Christmas, you will have both a story from me and an Advent Calendar entry from Paul – The Gentle Author.

    Snuggle in tight and have good cheer – it promises to be a one-horse open sleighride of yuletide folklore and delight!

    Huzzah! I shall show Messrs Pickwick, Snodgrass, Tupman and Winkle your seasonal
    calendar as we take coach to Dingley Dell for the Yuletide festivities. Off to buy a barrel
    of oysters and a huge codfish…
