Advent begins

imageYesterday was Advent Sunday and we lit the first candle on the Advent wreath. Today, those of us with Advent Calendars get to open the first window. In the rush to Christmas, Advent can get well and truly overlooked. But, done well, it’s a lovely season – a time of preparation, of watching and waiting, a time filled with hopeful expectation. I came across this video the other day, which brilliantly sums up what Advent is and isn’t really all about! See what you think.

  1. I like it. I always wondered why one candle is pink, so thank you for that. I am going to an annual Advent by Candlelight event tomorrow night. It is always very fancy and very beautiful and it always helps me begin the season with my focus set aright.
