Yesterday, marked the official start of the Advent Season! We lit the first candle on our Advent Wreath and said the prayers and talked about the meaning of the candles. We used some ideas from this website for anyone interested http://www.teachingmom.com/features/advent.html. We had our first Advent gift which was a quarter to represent the 25 days of Christmas. We also began our Jesse Tree for which we will decorate daily until Christmas by placing one ornament a day on to represent something meaningful. We also read the verses for the Jesse Tree and talked more about it. You may find ideas here to use http://www.cresourcei.org/jesse.html.
