Welcome to Day 20 of the Virtual Advent Tour!

Today the Virtual Advent Tour heads to Molly at my cozy book nook. Molly has written a post about her Christmas stocking tradition.

Thank, Molly, for the post and for taking part again in the Virtual Advent Tour!

In addition, I have a second treat for you: My awesome dad (who comments here as DOD) has written a guest post for us featuring a Christmas trivia game to challenge you. Put your holiday thinking caps on!:
