(Did you pick up an Advent coin box?)
Advent is a season of the liturgical year observed in many Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas and the return of Jesus at the Second Coming.
Advent is the beginning of the Western liturgical year.
The term “Advent” is also used in Eastern Orthodoxy for the 40-day Nativity Fast, which has practices different from those in the West.
begins Sunday, November 29
Can you say, “Happy New Year, everyone?”
Advent Sunday, also known as the First Sunday in Advent, is the first day of the Advent season in which Christians prepare for the celebration that commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ, Christmas. It is always on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day and can fall as early as November 27 and as late as December 3.
It is uncertain as to when exactly the celebration of Advent was first introduced in the Christian church. Some sources say that Advent began on November 11 (St Martin’s Day) at some time in the fifth century in the form of a six-week fast leading to Christmas.
