That time of Year

I always forget that Christmas season proper doesn’t actually start until Christmas day. This year, though, our church has been emphasizing Advent as a “season” similar to Lent. At home, since we’ve begun to indulge it as such it has become far more interesting, especially as I’ve never really done it in the past. We’re enjoying it, and it definitely adds to the anticipation of Christmas Day.

    One of my favorite things about the Christmas season as a kid was the weekly advent wreath candle-lighting. It did add so much to the build-up for Christmas.

    Is that old wreath still around? I agree with Shan–I think we had a pretty good line on the “true meaning.” Advent wreath meetings, love feasts, all that stuff was just the BEST of times.

    I miss it dearly.
