The name Advent according to
comes from the Latin word Adventus, which signifies a coming. In the Latin Church, it is the coming of the period of the year, during which the Church requires the faithful to prepare for the celebration of the feast of Christmas, the anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ.
I remember every Sunday in December, my mom would light a candle on the advent's wreath with my brother and me running around the house reciting:
"Advent, Advent, ein Lichtlein brennt,
erst eins, dann zwei, dann drei, dann vier...
Dann steht das Cristkind vor der Tür!"
Wishing you a lovely 1st Advent!
Loosely translated it means, advent, advent, advent, first one, then two, then three than four, then the Christ child will be in front of the door. Sounds kind of lame when translated, but really cute in German.
I still hum this little poem, when I make my reefs and decorate my home with them. In our home we still make it a point to have coffee and cake or cookies on Sunday. Just a way to stop all activities and take in the glory of the Christmas season.
I love decorating for Christmas and even the garden gets a wreath!
