The Start of Advent Season
© Mark M. Hancock
I can't believe we're already talking about Advent. This year is going too fast for me.
American Catholic put some good ideas for Advent activities:
Make a paper chain to count the days before Christmas. Write a task on the inside of each link, for example: "Offer the birds a piece of bread or some seed," or "Send a Christmas card to a lonely person." As family members remove links, this not only marks the days but also prepares our hearts for Christmas.
Send a Christmas card. I really need to do that since I didn't send any Christmas cards last year. Let's see how well I do this Advent.
