Advent Wreath - Guide to Meaning~ Awesome tradition to keep focus on the real Christmas. Sunday Dinner: December 1st 2013, December 8th, 15th, 22nd. and then the Christ candle on 24th and/or 25th. Light each in progression until all 4 are light before Christmas day!
The first Sunday of Advent, the Church’s season of waiting for Christ’s coming. Just like Mary once expected His birth, so do Christians worldwide during the weeks leading up to Christmas. Painting: Madonna del Parto, Chiesa di S. Pietro, Leonessa (Italy)
I don't usually post on Sundays, but as I was putting together this post, it just "felt" like a Sunday post. Perhaps it is because this is the first Sunday of Advent, and it just feels right to make this the day we transition to the Christmas season of anticipation and expectation.
