Two quizzes today!

Hmm...what does this one do again? Yes, it is pretty obvious, so why don´t you guess his name?!
The picture to the right depicts an Advent wreath - yes, I made it myself:). Each Sunday before Christmas Eve we light a candle. Now: each of the four candles has a name, which would be...? The prize for solving this quiz? Fame for a day, no fortune and a little bit of diversion :)

This is Pot Scraper, he snatches the unwashed pots from the kitchen and scrapes the insides with his fingers and tongue and leaves them quite clean.

The four candles... They are for the four sundays in advent... they represent hope, love, joy and peace respectively...


Ole y Ole! ;)

I was going to guess pot swimmer. Ah well.

At 12:18, Blogger Minka said...

miz bohemia...up so early? And yes, you are right . Pot Scraper is his name.
The candles however have different names! Well, they might be called hope, joy, love and peace somewhere, but I am referring to their old Christian names...
doug the una, that is a nice name for him. Well done!

I have been following your countdown. I enjoy your sense of humor and the illustrations. Do you know who the artist is? I could not find any credit given anywhere, to her/him. Confession: I am doing the same thing,on my blog, with Jolasveinar that I made.
P.S. Your friends also have a good sense of humor and miz bohemis is a genius, to have known Pot Scraper's name right away.

I am up at 5am practically everyday! That way I do my yoga at 6... it is the only break I get from kids and life in general!

As for the candle names... I am stumped! I even googled it and what I wrote before comes up!

Does this mean I won't be famous? *bohemian faints*

At 15:07, Blogger Fred said...

No guesses. I'll let everyone else use their brain power and come back to see the answer. Today is the last day of school, so I'm not going to think for a few weeks.

Christmas is coming!

*waiving my spearmint eucalyptus candle under Miz B's nose to revive her*

I was sure his name was going to be pot licker. Yesterday's post didn't affe...affe...affect me at all.

Anyways, the pictures are from jolamjólk.is. WE put a picture of our Santas on the milk cartons!
Yes miz bohemia is one of a kind and apparently fainting as we speak.

Fred, you deserve the rest. You can juts come say hi and kick back with a puzzle while the rest of us think :)

At 17:19, Blogger Doug said...

Sorry. Doug the Una is me. It's my name with Dddragon's daughters I forgot to switch back.

At 18:07, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

I am doing better, thank you Sar, just what the bohemian needed!

Monika, my dreams of fame have been shattered... I must go and lick my wounds... *bohemian walks away, crestfallen*

At 18:58, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, I knew it was you! The pic gave it away.

mo´a romig boyles: I was sp excite din answering that I forgot to welcome you to my block, thank you for the comment and the compliment. It is nice for a German to be attributed with a sense of humour :)

At 19:15, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

Ok! I am back and tougher than ever! World, hear me roar!

One more try!

1st Candle~ Candle of Prophecy-Promise-Waiting

2nd Candle~ Candle of Waiting and Preparation

3rd Candle~ Shepherd’s Candle– Peace, Light, Joy

4th Candle~ Flame of Love Angels/Wise people from the East

And a BONUS... many times there is a white candle in the middle known as the Christ candle or Messiah Candle...

Caching, caching! Did I win?

At 19:16, Blogger Minka said...

Miz Bohemia...you won your day of fame! Congratulation *she sings and bows deeply*

At 19:19, Blogger Minka said...

This is what I found on the net:
"The first candle is called the Candle of the Prophet. It reminds us of the prophecies foretelling the coming of Christ.

The second candle is the Bethlehem Candle, for the town where Jesus was born.

The third candle is the Shepherd Candle, in honor of the shepherds to whom the birth was announced.

The last candle is the Angel Candle, to remind us of the angels who heralded Christ's birth."

this is what they call them here, but I think it might vary from coutnry to country!

MRB, that is not a very common name, but I should have guessed that it might be an Icelandic one! Silly me!
OH thy Bohemian One, glad you are back dancing!

Well, I'm too late. Not that it matters. I flunked the test. I thought that guy was the meat in the Chicken Soup.

If you are serious about making the wreath, BRAVO. Very lovely.

At 12:35, Blogger Minka said...

TLP,no I did not make it myself.IT was a joke, maybe notan obvious one! I made one though, much prettier than this one and less traditional:)

At 15:03, Blogger karma said...
