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.
