This article has some good information on Advent. I found myself realizing how full our time of Advent really has become. This article gives you different ideas than you would expect for activities. Working toward incorporating these ideas will bring you closer to the true meaning of Christmas. If overwhelming try to pick one new activity and build from there. !! My husband’s hobby is decorating the outside with lights. (Griswalds comes to mind) I will try to incorporate other ways first and work up to the right before Christmas decorating, but what a great way to prepare for the coming of the Lord.
