It is hard for me to believe that we are closely approaching the advent season. As a child I remember through the month of December the candles at the front of the church that were lit until all five were glowing. It was a tradition that I loved. About 6 years ago my husband and I decided to do our own advent celebration at home with our girls.
Today I will get out the candles and the evergreen and set up the arrangement. Tomorrow we will gather around it and light the first candle of the Christmas Season. Since there are five of us and five candles, everyone gets one week to light their own. We start at the smallest and save the white candle that represents Jesus for Daddy.
I am often curious if any other families celebrate this tradition in their homes. Do you celebrate Advent?
