Christmas is coming!

Advent begins December 2 this year. Last year was the first year we have ever had an Advent wreath at home, and it was so lovely. Ours is a Jesse tree theme, with a symbol and a scripture verse for each day of Advent. Then we all sing O Come O Come Emanuel. The kids love it, because kids love ritual. Last year Sean was gone for much of Advent, visiting his dying father. He missed out on quite a few nights and he’s looking forward to it this year.

I put up our tree, see

So that makes it official. No Nativity set until Advent, though.
