Every year it seems the time for celebrating Christmas grows earlier and earlier. We are told to shop early, inundated with Christmas music by our coworkers the first day the weather dips below 40 degrees. We may not want to shame our friends and family for whichever way (or how early) they choose to begin the celebration, but we want to give the holiday its due. Advent is something we often don’t consider when planning for the Christmas season. The month preceding the Christmas holiday is one during which many can use to prepare their hearts so as not to get lost in all of the parties and shopping. There are many Christmas Advent books for Christians to focus on the birth of Christ.
