Advent is celebrated in a variety of ways, but usually follows a similar pattern to the outline provided here. I have found that by reading a story and singing a Christmas carol that fits the theme of the week helps to cement the message. Feel free to add in your own traditions, as there is no set formula for the advent season. The main desire is that your child(ren) and/or student(s) gain a deeper understanding of, and appreciation for, the waiting and anticipation of Christmas…the celebration of the birth of Christ. I have included basic information about the advent wreath and celebration to share with your family and/or class. If you are using this in a classroom or homeschool setting, I have also included a simple review and assessment to evaluate how much information your student(s) retained and can recall.
