25 Days of Christmas: first sunday of advent

12:50 PM

It's official!

Yesterday was the first Sunday of advent and that, for me, officially marks the start of the Christmas Season. Sure, our tree was up and the other areas of our house were decked out for the holidays a week before last but it still didn't feel right until the first violet candle was lit.

This doesn't mean that I don't like seeing Christmas decorations or hearing Christmas Carols in September.   (I wouldn't be Filipino if I did.) It's just that advent makes the season more real to me.

Now, we wait, oh so eagerly, for Him.

Happy Monday!

The first violet candle of advent wreath was lit yesterday at the Sta. Maria Della Strada Church.
