Advent is not too far away and it’s time to thing about building your family advent wreath. A great tradition during advent is lighting the advent wreath candles during family meals. Each week a new candle is added until we reach Christmas and then the center candle is lit. The children also have a tradition anticipating Christmas by opening a new portion of the advent calendar each day. The calendar is usually put on your refrigerator.
