Advent Begins

Happy Advent! (And, of course, Happy New Year!)

Here is a photo of one of our favorite family traditions that begins today. On the first Sunday of Advent, our nativity set figurines of Our Lady and St. Joseph begin their journey around our home. They will be in various places (desks, tables, the back of the sofa) until the last Sunday of Advent, when they will arrive at the manger scene with the stable, shepherds and sheep, waiting for the birth of the Holy Child. On Christmas, after we come back from Midnight Mass, we finally bring out the figure of the Baby in the manger, and rejoice for the Christmas season! (Already I can’t wait!)
