There are rhythms to December.
Both shopping and coming up with our own wishlist.
Decorating the tree, the house, the yard.
The first snowfall. The bitter cold.
The lighting of the Advent candles.
Why do we celebrate Advent?
Like where did the tradition come from?
Why purple/blue candles with one pink? Why a wreath? Why a special calendar?
And wait, what day does it start?
What do all those things represent?
What is the goal and purpose here?
I have a lot of questions.
Join me on this week’s episode of Have Hope; Will Travel were I wrestle with these questions and more.
I promise no answers. But I do have at least a little insight.
What Advent traditions are your favorite?
