What is Advent?
Advent is the name of the season in which Christians prepare for the celebration that commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ, Christmas. The word Advent comes from the Latin phrase “Adventus Domini”, meaning arrival of the Lord.
The Advent season is of variable length and the start date changes every year. It starts on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day and always ends on Christmas Eve.
Common customs observed in churches and at home during Advent are the decoration of the house with an Advent wreath adorned with candles and the keeping of an Advent calendar.
Season November 29 – December 24, 2020
For the past 3 years, My Husband and I have used the She Reads Truth | He Reads Truth Advent Reading Plan.
“This four-week Advent experience features daily Scripture reading carefully curated for the Advent season. It is also filled with seasonal delights, from daily prayer prompts and reflection questions to favorite holiday recipes, festive hymns, and Christmas crafts. Join us as we anticipate and remember the profound miracle that Jesus Christ is Born.”
My child also has the Advent Conversation Cards
and the This is The Christmas Story
from the Kids Reads Truth line.
I really enjoy this being a family affair.
