Advent Clicks!

NativityIt seems fitting to share these early, while there's still plenty of time to gather thoughts and supplies.  I say that, of course, with the full knowledge that some of our festivals happen with very little preparation at all.  I read for months and then throw it all together at the last minute.  Nonetheless, some links for Christmas.

  • The Inner Work of Advent :: I've really enjoyed the articles that I've read from this list thus far, especially the "no comment" one.  We had to adapt that policy a long time ago.

  • Ribbon Candy Felt Ornaments :: I found this a couple weeks ago and already forgot about it!  This is definitely in our plans for gifts this year.  And we're getting our own ribbon candy to try for the first time.

  • Musings on St. Nicholas or How to Play St. Nicholas at Home :: A very sweet article with numerous practical and thought-provoking ideas.

  • An Advent Spiral At Home :: This is in two parts, the second one is here.  It's an amazing transformation and really encouraged me.  Our goal is to have it outside again, but inside will be just fine and maybe better, if there's a strong wind.

  • Lifeways Winter 2012-13 Newsletter :: There are many helpful links here for enjoying the Winter festivals with young children.  There are thoughts on seasonal tables, family traditions, and creating festivals at home.  I feel like the Lifeways people really have a deep connection to living with the very young in a beautiful and functional way.

  • The Advent Garden :: The article is nearly sixty years old, but it is still full of wonder and inspiration.

  • A Snow Princess Journeys Through the Lands of Wonder, Towards the Heart of Winter :: A lovely reflection on the Advent Garden.  Wonderful artistry and photography.

  • A Story for the Evergreen Garden :: This would be suitable for the Winter Solstice, which is near the fourth Sunday in Advent and when we will do our spiral.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
