Christmas Day is a time of gift giving and feasting, a time of overindulgence and celebration. Advent is a contrast to this as I have said, a time of waiting, excitement and learning.Ask me about how my family and I celebrate Advent… Oh and for all you word lovers… Did you notice how ADVENT looks just like ADVENTURE… They are closely related words… Come and ask me why….So have a wonderful Advent adventure, candles, calendars and Christians.God Bless/Sendai Study Advisor Ali
