Preparing for Advent 2007

This year we are trying something a little bit new for us.  We are trying to finish our Christmas shopping before Advent.  The goal is two-fold: missing the Christmas consumerism chaos and being able to set Advent aside as a spiritual, joyful and family time.

Goldstar #1 for me I have my Advent candles purchased and ready to go. 

The Anchoress has a couple ideas for Christmas gifts and I really like the idea of purchasing from religious and entrepreneurs.   Fantastic idea and there is still time in most cases to make it a reality.  I will toss a plug out there for one of my favorites the date nut cake from Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Abbey in Lafayette, Oregon.
