    One of my brother’s keeps Christmas this way—they don’t even put up their tree until Christmas Eve. I used to think that was crazy (all that work for only 12 days?), but as I get older, the whole Advent idea makes more and more sense. And they sure do feast for those 12 days!!

    Matthew’s Begats will be interesting, I think. I am tempted to offer up my eldest child to start us off by singing Andrew Peterson’s song by that name — he’s got it all memorized!

    Advent has quickly become my fav. Christian season and is a very cool liturgical inheritance. Learning the full liturgical calendar since being in an Anglican Church has been great. I love the rhythm of returning to the season and seeing some hefty theological concepts broken down into bite-sized pieces.

    Looking forward to Adventy Fireside Chats (Tues. 730-845 pm) and finding those moments of quiet to prepare a heart of worship for Christmas celebrations. The only thing I’m not a fan of is holding off on the Christmas songs. If we’ve gotta hold off, then we better have one doozy of a sing come Christmastide!
