So what do I do to celebrate Advent?
Some other things I do is try and read daily advent reflections I receive either via email or from the books I have found at my parish. I’m not always good at keeping up with these things though. I also want to try and go to adoration or daily mass at least once a week.
One thing I like to do is to take part in different christmas/advent events that happen around town. Like take a ride on the nights of lights trolley that goes around downtown. My sister and I plan on taking a Segway tour one night during the season to be able to see all the lights. And of course listen to holiday themed music and movies.
I also always try and do something cool on my blog. This year I’m hosting an Advent Blog-hop. Every day of Advent different bloggers are sharing about their advent/christmas traditions and I’ll be sharing their blogs on social media and my blog. It seems to be going well so far but we’re only 2 days in HA.
There are a lot of photo challenges but I haven’t started any of them yet…some of them are HARD..especially when I don’t really go anywhere interesting most days. Hey I’m a work in progress. I hope everyone has a very Happy Advent and Christmas Season and see you all in the link-up next year!
I have had that EXACT problem with photo challenges! There are only so many things to take photos of when I’m in my same old house or at my same old job.
I love purple, too, so I love getting wear all my purple clothes for Advent. I recently got a purple sweater to help winterize my liturgical wardrobe.

Nice! I think a cooler photo challenge would be to do one word a week and see how many times you can find that word in daily life. I think that would be easier and more reflective…good Lent idea! LOL.
Yay for all the purple!
We did the same swap last year! Which ornament is yours?!! Mine is Jacob’s Ladder 🙂
