Advent is a quiet time of prayer.
We become more introspective during Advent.
While being prayerful...we prepare our homes and minds for the birth of Jesus.
Keeping Christmas simple is our goal. Let's relax and not get caught up in all the modern trappings of the season. Take time to go to Church, if you wish, enjoy the music of the holiday, buy simple gifts....or better yet give more handmade things, simplify your baking....why not a couple of good cookies instead of wearing yourself out making so many, dress in comfort, share with friends, take a nap, read some poetry and the Christmas story, breathe, and most of all enjoy and cherish your family.
