It’s a year for simple Christmas preparations. Not much shopping… just special ways to set the time apart and anticipate Jesus’ birth.
School work has slowed. Review time will keep things fresh in everyone’s minds, but leave time for plenty of baking and crafting.
There will be Christmas program rehearsals.
Devotions around our Advent wreath.
Our focus this year is to sing Advent hymns and learn the Christmas hymns by heart. After all, God’s only Son became human to invite us to be his own… and we want to be ready to celebrate with gusto!
How are you marking the time of Advent?
