31 Days Before Christmas

We just celebrated the Solemnity of Christ the King last Sunday. This means that we will be ending another liturgical year soon and starting a new one with the celebration of the Advent Season. Then after lighting all those candles for four Sundays, it's going to be Christmas Day again! I'm so excited!

What makes Advent and Christmas so special? As tradition suggests, it's the time to bring out the Belen or the Nativity Scene. It is also the time to pull from the stockroom the Advent wreath, Christmas trees, decors and whatnots. And if you are eager to make your decorations more fanciful, all you need is to buy those beautiful LED Christmas Lights. Lights can create a whole difference in making your decorations and homes look more festive.

On the spiritual side, let us not forget that we also need to have that spirit of penance and coming back to Our Lord. He has indeed been good to all of us not only during the past year but in every minute and every second of our lives. We all have to be grateful for all the graces and gifts that God has been sending us. He is the reason for all of these celebrations and without Him, there will be no Christmas. Do you agree?
