The liturgical season of Advent begins on Sunday, December 1. Will your family observe this time of preparation? Time to plan Advent observances!
For many families, the holidays present a challenge of values. How do you focus on the season's meaning when the celebration provides so many distractions?
Too often, the excitement seems to boil down to a round of gifts and goodies, with little thought to the deeper values underlying the fun.
One way to keep the reason in the season: Advent observances. Whether it's a customs like an Advent wreath, daily Scripture readings, or attendance at worship, plan Advent activities now. Entered in your calendar, they'll help your family keep the focus while enjoying the celebration.
Store infrequently-used kitchen items--such as a canning kettle, turkey platter or bread machine--outside the kitchen. Devote a single area in basement, garage or attic to outsource kitchen storage, so you'll know where to go to find needed items. Keep a working kitchen lean and organized!
