So far this Advent Season I've shared a little about some Christmas traditions, some old legends and even some things I've been doing here at my house. As of today there will only be 7 more days here till we have our Family Christmas. It will be 2 more weeks before we will actually be celebrating Christmas Day but our family is a large one and we get together when it is most convenient for everyone.
That being said you know it is a very busy week for me here for me at my house. So much has to yet be finished before I'm ready. It will be a GET IT ALL DONE weekend for me. The bad thing is that every time I turn around it seems that there is more to do. The good news is that it is almost all done!
I'll be able to enjoy the whole week before Christmas in peace and quiet too as our celebration is a week ahead of time.
No matter how busy I get, though, I take time out of every day for a little Advent prayer and reflection. I have some nice booklets that were provided by our church for doing this. Quiet time, if only for 15 minutes out of each day renews for me the true meaning of this Season.
The Season of Advent continues until Christmas and then the Christmas Season begins for me. Christmas Day until the Epiphany or Little Christmas on January 6th. I know a lot of people that put away Christmas at New Years but for me it continues just a bit longer.
On this FANTASTIC Friday I'm also taking a little time out to finish up the wee bit of shopping that I do. The weather man says we may have some snow. It's not my favorite thing at all but it sure does seem to be an important part of Christmas for a lot of folks.
Hope your Friday is a FANTASTIC one !
