  1. I grew up with an Advent wreath on our dining room table and every night singing together O Come, O Come Emmanuel. This year, our one and a half year old has been preparing for Advent by learning to blow out candles. I cant wait to light the first candle, sing for Emmanuel and show Isaac a deep awe of darkness, light, and the season.

  2. I love the quiet of Advent. Growing up, we kept Christmas music and decoration out of the house for the Advent season. I still make a wreath and enjoy prayers in aware darkness.

  3. I didn’t really have Advent traditions growing up except for the usual wreath at church on Sundays. It has been really wonderful to marry into a family that holds this season sacred at church and home with rich traditions, including singing and wreath making.
