Having been raised a cradle Catholic, I cannot do Christmas without celebrating Advent.
Today is the first Sunday in Advent.
Advent is a season observed in many Western Christian churches
as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas. The term is an anglicized version of the Latin word adventus, meaning "coming".
Today I will create my Advent wreath and begin reliving my childhood joys of anticipating Christmas!
I'm sure that all of the many faiths for this beautiful season work just fine. This one is simply my upbringing.
Happy Season of Love to all of you!
