Today is the first Sunday of Advent. We went to Mass this morning and the girls really enjoyed seeing the beautiful purple incorporated into the garments and altar as well as watching as the first candle of the Advent Wreath was lit. We will also light the first candle on our wreath each night this week at dinner time.
We’ve been talking all week about making some sort of Advent Calendar. Annette at Seasons of Joy inspired us to incorporate stars into our calendar and this is what we came up with…. originally I was thinking of doves.
We are calling it our ‘Advent Spiral Calendar’ and we just love it 🙂 Each day we will add the star that is associated with that day until we reach our center and can place the Christmas Star on as God’s light comes into our world.
