The Advent Season is all about waiting and preparing for the birth of Jesus. Every night in December we celebrate the coming of Our Savior with the lighting of the Advent Spiral. We light the first candle on the first night of December, then every night after we light one more. So that each night we are lighting one more candle and getting one candle closer the the center of the spiral, Christmas Day.
"Winter is dark, yet each tiny spark,
Brightens the way, to Christmas Day.
Shine little light, and show us the way,
To the bright light of Christmas Day."
We say this little poem as we light the candles. We read our Advent Verse from the Advent Card. We say our bedtime prayers together. We blow out the candles. And we go to bed.
