Have a blessed Advent

Advent starts today, the run up to Christmas has begun (not the disgraceful capitalist one, that started in August when I spied the first Xmas advert).

I spent this evening at my local church enjoying an advent carols by candle light…it has been part of my churches year since 1888 at least, and probably well before!

Advent is the liturgical period preceding Christmas, beginning in Western churches on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and in Eastern churches in mid-November, and observed by many Christians as a season of prayer, fasting, and penitence.
