For Christians, Advent season focuses on the expectation of Christ’s birth in the season leading up to Christmas.
Advent lasts for four Sundays before Christmas.
The third week focuses on The Shepherd Candle and the promise of Joy.
My tradition as an author is to create an Advent Book Calendar to meet and read one book each day of Advent. Advent began on: November 27th, 2016.
