This past Sunday was the 1st day of Advent 2011. I love this time of year in the Catholic Church. We wait in the dark for the coming of our Savior, as a baby. (Just got a flash of Ricky Bobby praying, "Dear Lord Baby Jesus"!) I remember being so excited to eat supper so that we could light the Advent wreath each night. (Even though that meant one of my brothers trying to blow out the candle when it wasn't his turn. There were plenty of arguments and tears - and tattling - during those nights, too!) Lighting the pink candle was super exciting, because that meant that Advent was halfway over, and we were that much closer to Christmas!
Father Christian had this video on his blog, and I wanted to share it with you.
Does your family do anything special for others during Advent/the holidays?
