Advent is here! I’ve been looking forward to it more this year than other’s previous as I feel like we’re at the beginning of being able to start our family traditions that the kids can REALLY be involved with. What those traditions are/will be is still TBD, unfortunately. However, for this year we are at least going to do some daily/nightly scripture readings & sing songs. I’d like to steal a fun “nightly christmas book” idea from a friend, but have yet to set anything in stone with Ryan. Anyhow, in general though, we will be ‘celebrating’ advent, not just the actual DAY of christmas…something about building up to and relishing the significance of the birth of Christ is so romantic to me…. Oh yeah and oma & opa sent chocolate advent calendars that we will be opening today as well. the kids dont’ know about it yet. Looking forward to opening it.
But I was curious, do any of you have advent traditions? Even if i’ve already corresponded w/you about your ideas via email, if you don’t mind, could you post a comment about them here so we can ALL steal them?
Oh & I have “claude the dog, a christmas story” on hold at the library.
