Advent: The Real Meaning of Christmas Lights
I fully agree with not starting to celebrate Christmas until after the 4th Sunday of Advent but I temporarily suspended that practice this year. I was asked right before Thanksgiving to come back over to the UAE for all of December for work and got here yesterday. Needless to say I was letting myself listen to Xmas music on the radio everyday before I left. I will be able to celebrate Christmas at St Joseph’s over here so that is really the important thing. Happy Advent!
At least light the Advent wreath on the Sundays during this special season.
