Rituals and traditions are important this time of year, no matter what holiday you observe, or what you are looking forward to…the solstice the return of the light), the New Year, a covid vaccine, new president, etc..
Rituals connect us to our past, to our families, where we came from, and to what has shaped our lives.
Growing up I remember lighting the advent wreath. Advent was the beginning of the liturgical year. One of the candles represents each of the 4 weeks before Christmas and symbolizes a particular theme. This week, the first week of Advent, the first purple candle symbolizes Hope.
Advent is about anticipation and preparation of your heart and home.
What are you preparing for and anticipating?
