How will we prepare for the Light of the World

You ladie are wonderful. All my favourite family traditions have been posted about. Thanks

We have added different traditions over the years to help us prepare our hearts.

The Jesse tree has been a favourite. Brid has been a very hard working girl, creating felt symbols for our Jesse Tree, which I have sewn together. We got the symbols from here.

It is up on the wall and has each symbol tucked away in a pocket until the day it is revealed and is positioned on the outside pocket.

We have commenced our St Andrews Novena. I love it and it is so easy. Have a look here.

Our Advent wreath is in use and the Advent chain, we found this idea here.

Brid had a very old cardboard Jesse Tree which she really wanted to reuse, so we have that up as well.
Here is our latest creation

Happy Advent.

It looks beautiful! I have an Advent calendar which I quilted, colours similar. My plan for this week (supposed to be done last week LOL) is to get candles for an Advent wreath.
