#MicroblogMondays - Advent Traditions

It's December 1st, and the race to Christmas is underway.  We started this morning with our annual-manual-made Advent calendar that my mother-in-law made for us when we got Sofie all those years ago.  I went on a hunt and plunder adventure at Target and the first gift of the season was Christmas Hel.lo K.itty socks.  A crowd-pleaser for me and a snoozer to her. The tree is up. The outside lights are up.  I bought Christmas aromatherapy candles yesterday.  And we remembered to light our single Advent candle (thank you BBB).  We started a new tradition of saying the Norwegian Advent Poem (in Norwegian and English) and then what we are grateful in our lives.

What are your advent traditions?

  1. Well... we have none since we don't celebrate Christmas. But it's such a fun idea to count down to the holiday, getting to do a small celebration every day.
