Of course, these precious little ones we work to protect are a reminder of the birth we will soon celebrate of the Christ Child! Beginning the Church's liturgical year, Advent (from, "ad-venire" in Latin or "to come to") is the season encompassing the four Sundays (and weekdays) leading up to the celebration of Christmas.
The Advent season is the time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ's second coming at the end of time, and to the anniversary of the Lord's birth on Christmas. The final days of Advent, from December 17 to December 24, focus particularly on our preparation for celebrations of the Nativity of our Lord (Christmas).
Advent devotions, including the Advent wreath, remind us of the meaning of the season. An Advent calendar can help you fully enter into the season with daily activity and prayer suggestions to prepare you spiritually for the birth of Jesus Christ.
Wishing you and your family a very Merry and Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Thanks for all you do for Life and God bless,
