Advent is a time that many Christian families all over the world look forward to every year, and it begins on the fourth Sunday prior to Christmas. It is truly a family experience as hearts are preparing for the return of Christ. Each family member can have a part in Advent. The wreath symbolizes God's unending love and the eternal life He makes possible. Traditionally the lighting of the candles in the Advent wreath is done by the adults as a family activity. Scripture is read, and the candles are lit each week in a certain order. The children have an important part by opening the hidden messages in their Advent calendar. Perhaps they will even receive a treat!
