Advent is a Happy Time
By Gaby Smith
Advent is my favorite liturgical season. I love the Masses, the music, the anticipation for the birth of Christ and more. I love the season of giving. Call me cliche, but my favorite time of the year is Advent and Christmas.
Our traditions include the Advent wreath and the decorating of the Christmas tree. It’s just a happy time.
I also love preparing to see our family members. This season is full of life and love for our family.
With my brother in the military, this will most likely be our last year together as a family, for a while. I know this will be an important year.
Have you experienced a holiday where you knew it was going to be an important one?
I know some find this time of year difficult. I pray for you and your family. I hope that the love of Christ fills your heart this Advent and Christmas. My hope is that you find at least one wonderful tradition to fill your heart with joy.
What are you favorite Advent and Christmas traditions?
