Advent is a liturgical season in our Church that prepares us to welcome Jesus at Christmas. The season is a gift to us, reminding us to slow down, and not get caught up in the hustle and bustle. This Advent create your own special playlist to help you get into the true spirit of Christmas. Videos, reflections, and activities are intended to make this preparation joyful! Get creative and have fun.
Don’t let the lists overwhelm you. The abundance of ideas is not intended to add to the pressure. Just choose something that speaks to you: learning about Advent, focusing on wreaths, calendars, nativities, Christmas books, Christmas baking, or even Christmas movies.
Watch this video and discuss the elements of your Christmas that help keep your family’s focus on the real meaning of the season.
