Advent officially begins Sunday, December 2nd this year. Last year our family started the tradition of reading an Advent story series written by Arnold Ytreeide. I only purchased the first book (Jotham's Journey), because I wasn't sure our family would like it. Well...we LOVED the book. It became one of our favorite parts of Christmastime. Since we enjoyed the book so much last year, I went ahead and ordered the next two in the series from HERE. To our delight, they arrived yesterday.
I look forward to sitting by candlelight each evening with my boys as my husband reads a chapter from Bartholomew's Passage. There are 12 days until Advent begins. How will your family celebrate Advent this year?
