Lacy, the genius behind Catholic Icing is doing amazing things. Just go peruse.
Elizabeth Foss compiled a post of her Advent and Christmas links and traditions. Many of these have become traditions in my own family.
Barbara Curtis at Mommy Life has weeded out some lovely children's Nativity Sets. I have a few of them and there is real value in making some available to the little ones to play with. It's so sweet to see your four year old acting out the Christmas story with their own Nativity Set.
Faith and Family Live Advent Musts and Movies This is a must read by Tim and April Hoopes
Another great read at Faith and Family by Joseph Pronechen.
Just as a reminder you might want to make a New Year's celebration part of your weekend. The first Sunday of Advent is the beginning of the Church's new liturgical year so a New Year's Eve party is perfectly appropriate and really almost a necessity. Who needs another reason to drink champagne? Why we all do. Don't forget that we are part of a faith tradition that recognizes the value in a good celebration. So bring out your party hats and noisemakers and let the children party the new year in.
Now, back to my coma.
