Today is the 1st day of Advent – do you have a calendar (or two or three)? Do you have a different one each year, or do you use the same one for every Advent season? Tell us!

I used to make the traditional Advent wreath in years past, but have since given it up. Germantown Church still has their traditional Advent wreath lighting at the beginning of each service, along with their Carol’s and Candles ceremony, in which they decorate the church for the upcoming holiday season… Its a sight to behold. I hope everyone can make it this year.

Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts. ~ Janice Maeditere
