Wonderful Ways to Celebrate Advent 6



I love Christmas and the Advent.  I really want to celebrate advent and use the time to focus on the true meaning of Christmas and make it about giving and have a joy filled time with my family. I want advent to be about more than just opening a door on an advent calendar and getting a piece of chocolate, I want it to be a time where we cement our family traditions and give joy to other people.

Ways to make Advent meaningful. Make the lead up to Christmas a wonderful time for all the family with these simple ways to celebrate advent.

We have a number of different advent traditions that have developed since the boys were tiny.  We have our own advent calendar and do an activity each day as a family.  Over the last three years, we have also introduced an act of kindness into each day of advent.  Just a small thing that we can do to bring joy to other people.  The other big thing that we do is our reverse advent calendar.  I was fearful of Christmas becoming a time of wanting and this is not something I want for my family, I need it to be a time for balance.
