I Don’t Do “Cute Advent”

This is what we’re doing for Advent this year. Calendars. One with chocolate, and one with Lego pieces. There will also be the one they pass out at church, with a Bible verse behind each door. We’ll attend the annual church Advent luncheon and learn the songs for the Christmas pageant. But that’s it. No Jesse Tree. No moving nativity scene figures from one part of the house to the other. Nothing handmade. Nothing that involves me gift-wrapping 24 picture books I don’t want to gift-wrap. Advent is supposed to be about waiting for Christ. It has nothing to do with chocolates or Legos, and waiting for Christ definitely has nothing to do with calendars.
