Starting tomorrow, watch for a series of posts called "It's Advent Not Christmas."
Longtime Treehouse readers may remember the story of our toddler-aged Apprentice, who caught on to the idea of Advent so well that she corrected a well-meaning grownup who asked her, mid-December, if she wasn't excited that it was Christmas. "Save a little Christmas for Christmas," went the words to a song in one animated T.V. special.
Advent, thankfully, seems too hard for the stores to package and the radio stations to overdo. It's a sacred time and space. It's a place to reflect. But sometimes even that's hard to pin down. What is the real deal about Advent?
Maybe we can explore that in the days to come.
