Our Family’s Best Advent Tradition

Our kids are in the glory years of Advent anticipation. Catie is in high school, our twins, Sam and Elisabeth, are in middle school, and Nate is in elementary school. Everyone is old enough to remember this season of gifts and miracles, but also too excited to fall asleep on Christmas Eve. A little maturity and a lot of wonder, that’s Advent around our house.

Advent Activities You Can Do Right Now with Zero Planning

After Thanksgiving, the holiday season is in full gear—Advent services, Christmas Eve children’s programs, New Year’s Eve candlelight vigils. . . . It’s a lot. So in the midst of all that planning, you might forget that Advent can mean more than just going to midweek services and eating a potluck before.
