2022 Advent Calendar Blog Hop

   Here is our Online Advent Calendar, it will be updated every day. 

Scroll down to see the latest picture and a link to the poster's blog.

This year I have asked each participant "What's for Afters?"
The question familiar to every parent whether you call it Afters, Dessert, Sweet or Pudding, you just know the kids are going to ask for it before the main course is barely finished.
For us, there is only one choice - Christmas Pudding with flaming brandy and custard.

But what do you have?
Hop over each day to discover what delicious treats our blogging friends enjoy.

This year, we have some lovely new doors, thanks to my dear friend Jocondine who made me the most beautiful Advent Calendar with a different hand-painted door each day!

Now I've visited everyone and enjoyed a little afters with each person, I can reveal our Top Desserts:

In the Number 1 spot we have Cookies of various kinds with 12 votes.
Second place with 9 votes is the traditional Christmas Pudding.
In third place we have a variety of Pies - including pumpkin (or squash) and apple.

Pies alone got 8 votes but Mince Pies got an additional 4 votes.  However I don't tend to think of individual mince pies in the same way as an large apple pie.  Do you?

Next most popular were the Buche de Noel (3 votes) and various other cakes (also 3 votes).  We could combine these all under "Cake" and get fourth place with 6 votes.

Sherry Trifle received 3 votes as did sweet treats such as fudge.

Only 1 person mentioned fruit!

The totals do add up to more than 24 because several people listed more than one dessert.

Finally, I'll be updating the Calendar every day, do remember to leave a comment on each blog.  It really does encourage people to keep on blogging!

Thank you for hosting yet again and very interesting tally of afters. Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

Another wonderful year for your Advent hop, I'm pretty sure I "opened" every day and enjoyed hearing about all those afters!
Sadly, we lost power just before I started baking, so no home baked treats for us.
Cheers to a Happy New Year and more blog hopping!

This was a fun year! Made me hungry every day, but now that Christmas is over and I've had my fill of cookies and other treats, I can just read those without my mouth watering, haha :D
