Today is the first day of December, 24 days until Christmas Eve. As a child, these days would go by so slowly. As a mother, these days would go by so FAST!
When my sons were little, I started a tradition of doing the Advent Wreath, which in my faith is a time of preparation for Christmas. The Christmas Season doesn’t actually begin until Christmas Eve. http://catholiceducation.org/articles/religion/re0132.html
The preparation, the tree trimming and the Christmas carols were such a joyous time. Now, it is not so joyous, however, I carry on the tradition of the Advent Wreath and look forward to Christmas Eve.
Towards that goal, today, I went to a Christmas Bazaar with my sister and bought a new Christmas ornament.
