Advent sounds cool.

Are there any countries/locales that celebrate 12 days of Christmas? I've always wondered about that.

yeah we celebrate the 12 days also, we don't take our tree down until then. And we do our gift exchange between out extended family on Christmas Eve at midnight, the little kids usually fall asleep and we wake them up , if I had to do it when I was little then they should too!! We usually go to the early mass that day. Santa still comes on Christmas morning also.
Ohhh, I celebrate Advent! I'm German, and my mom was born in Germany, so I've celebrated Advent my entire life. I even still get the calendar . And I also have the wreath, and sing the Advent song in German as I light a candle, one more for each week. And today Saint Nicolaus came

CoN green, HE hello hydration, burt's bees super shiny condish, & KCCC.

mostly 3b, mod CG


Smiles are free, so give them away.

Celebrate we will, 'cause life is short but sweet, for certain.

What's the German song? I'd love to know it. We didn't learn that one.

dann steht das Christkind vor der Tür!

I think this is so much more spiritual and meaningful than "HURRYHURRY-BUYTHEBIGSCREENTV-RUN-THROUGH-THE-STORE-ON-CHRISTMAS-EVE-15-MINUTES-BEFORE-CLOSING-AND-GET-A-PACK OF BIC PENS-FOR-YOUR-BOSS'S MOTHER-BECAUSE-EVERYTHING ELSE IS WIPED OUT!!!".......

.......and then the inevitable letdown on December 26. I mean, I enjoy Christmas with my family (well, in-laws family, my family was Jehovahs Witness and celebrated nothing) but I really wish we could celebrate the holidays like that
didn't grow up celebrating the whole advent season but hope to start doing a Jesse Tree with the family next year.

I think I understand that song! Cute! Is it:

Advent, Advent, a little light shines
First one, then two, then three, the foor
then the Christ child is standing in the door!

I think German is such a wonderful language.

Ooh, I had never heard of Advent. It sounds really nice. I can't believe I've never heard of it until now.

Thanks Poodle & CurliLocks!
I love our house. The spindles are nice, but a pain to clean! lol
Poodle...that purple you see is part of the ribbon wrapped around the greenery of the wreath.
Sounds like a beautiful tradition.

I do observe it but I've missed Mass the past two weeks due to illness and just haven't gotten into it this year.
