If you’re looking for books for Advent, or ideas for incorporating charity into your family Advent practice, simple family devotions , or a craft for your little ones, check out these links.
Here are all my previous posts on how our family celebrates St Nicholas Day (Dec 6) are here (and here and here.) Here are a few posts on various Advent traditions we have kept, trying to make Advent different from our celebration of Christmas.
I am hoping to map out a rough “schedule” with room to wiggle– planning lighter school with extra afternoon time for crafting, or surprising our neighbors with acts of charity. Not sure what those will be yet, but it’ll come.
We got A Christmas Carol on CD– read by Jim Dale!– and I’m looking forward to listening to that and reading through The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and The Oxford Book of Christmas Poems.
Be sure to check out the comments on the links above. There are some wonderful ideas there, too.
