Hello, Daydreamers! It is finally the last week of Christmas With Adele. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, I was unable to have a game created like last year, but we do have plenty in store for you!
First of all... We have the results from the Album vs. Album contest, and... No surprise here, the winner is *drumroll please*... the flawless 21!
The next matter of business... In honor of the end of the year coming, I thought we would chronicle Adele's Year in Review. She's had another incredible year this year, so what better way to end it than to look back on the good old days (aka earlier this year) when she was actually doing something? :) Here is Adele's Year in Review:

And if that wasn't enough, we also have Adele's year in GIFs, courtesy of my assistant administrator, Tor Duck: http://belovedfilms.tumblr.com/post/70772060568/adele-2013. He also gave us links to more funny Tumblr posts about Adele, if anyone is interested in viewing them:
And to top it off, I do want to give all of you Daydreamers a Christmas gift being that I was unable to do anything super special this year for you. In 2011, Adele performed a three-song acoustic set at NPR. NPR has posted the MP3 of her 'Tiny Desk Concert' on their website for free, and as a Christmas present to you guys for all your support, I'm giving you guys the download link to it: http://pd.npr.org/anon.npr-mp3/npr/asc/2011/02/20110213_asc_adele.mp3?dl=1. Simply click the link and it should begin downloading.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a blessed holiday! We will see you in the new year! Thank you for another wonderful year and for all your love and support!
