Savor Advent, Feast on Christmas

My family’s new traditions made the season richer

After four years of celebrating a more robust Advent, my oldest now says that our practice makes Christmas better.

“I wish that other families did Advent the way that we do,” she said recently. “Then they could better appreciate the reason for the season—Jesus.”

Amen, baby girl. Amen.
