Each of the 4 Sunday's leading up to Christmas my family celebrates Advent. (my husband's name is Joe, and we have four children - Hannah, Noah, Oliver and Georgia)
We've done it for as long as I can remember.
We pour eggnog into tiny teacups, and eat 2 special cookies. One from Germany, and the other white chocolate dipped Oreo cookies.
With the lights turned off, we light our Advent candle, and have family time.
Since we're doing the Jesse tree this year (I wrote about this in an earlier post), we are reviewing all of the ornaments we placed on the tree that week and sharing what we love about God.
It’s one of my favorite traditions of Christmas.
