Things You Need To Consider When You Are Preparing Your Home And Family For Advent.
The term advent actually means the period of time when people are preparing for a Christmas feast something which maybe done through prayers, fasting or daily devotions by different people although in Catholics they involve advent wreaths, nativity scenes, watching Christmas movies or even movies about saints or cooking.
This time is very important in our entire life and therefore prayers should be organized in order to prepare for it and mediate to our God to protect us from different things which might happen since that day is always associated with different bad omens, organize your individual prayers and to some extend fasting and praying in order to prepare for the day. The preparation does not only mean having individual organized prayers only, you can set aside some days for family devotions and if so consider advent wreath since it is one of the best tools In devotions, each week gather around your wreath with your whole family to pray then you may decide to light candle around your wreath and by doing this you will act as an example which your children will copy from and practice it in future. It is good that every person in the family to be aware of the cerebration of a Christmas feast, however, this can be enable only if you organize a nativity scene in your family few weeks before the feast whereby you can save baby Jesus and the three wise men for the appropriate time in your narration, you will be actually helping many people to get the background information on the feast and also build a great foundation to the children in the family.
It is also very important that you spend time with your family during the Advent season as well something which can be enhanced by watching movies together, cooking, playing cards, and board games together makes a very important aspect to be considered by the family members.
Good thing with the Christmas feast is that many people will always remember it due to the decorations involved in our family for that day, the good foodstuffs also prepared makes the day not to just pass like any other, people will tend to hung greenery and lights I their house it is always a pleasing thing to think of. Also arrange on proper cooking of meals during that day day putting in mind that we are preparing for the coming king, sharing is very important In fact try inviting different people from different communities to come and eat with you just as the Christ himself used to do the people.
