Happy Third Advent Sunday

Hi to all! It is the third Sunday of Advent already. Advent is celebrated by Christians who prepare for the coming of the Birth of Jesus. It is derived from Latin word adventus which simply means "coming ". It is also the time or period before the coming of Christmas. This morning I already lit the third candle in our advent wreath while taking my breakfast. I am alone this weekend since my husband have to go to work.

Some more days and Christmas is almost coming. I hope you will have a memorable and joyous one!!

Here is an example of advent wreath. I wish you an enjoyable Sunday!!


Merry Christmas

I would like to extend my warmest greetings to each and everyone!!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
Got this cute graphic from my former classmate and friend Aileen in friendster.
Thanks Leen for the greetings..wish you the same!!



What is Advent

Advent (from the Latin word adventus, meaning "coming") is a season of the Christian church, the period of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus, in other words, the period immediately before Christmas. It is the beginning of the Western Christian year and commences on Advent Sunday. The Eastern churches begin the liturgical year on 1 September.[1] The Eastern Christian equivalent of Advent is called the Nativity Fast but it differs both in length and observances.

The progression of the season may be marked with an Advent calendar, a practice introduced by German Lutherans. At least in the Roman Catholic calendar, Advent starts on the fourth Sunday before December 25; in other words, the Sunday between November 27 and December 3 inclusive.

Latin adventus is the translation of the Greek word parousia, commonly used in reference to the Second Coming. Christians believe that the season of Advent serves a dual reminder of the original waiting that was done by the Hebrews for the birth of their Messiah as well as the waiting that Christians today endure as they await the second coming of Christ.
