Baby Jesus Advent Calendar

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

A Family Tradition
Advent means "the coming" and refers to the 4 week season of preparation for the coming of Jesus on Christmas Day
and anticipation of His coming again. Advent begins the Sunday nearest November 30th and continues until December 24th.
The Advent calendar, which originated in 19th Century Europe, has 24 numbered flaps concealing a biblical scene and verse about the coming of the Messiah. Children especially enjoy opening a new door each day
as Christmas draws near and we come once again to the Birth of Christ.
12" wide and ribbon for hanging. Ribbon will vary. Available at our "petite department store"!
We wish everyone a Blessed Christmas Season.

What a beautiful advent calendar. I wish I would have found this before it was too late, sigh. Next year, I will be back to buy!
