Do any of you do anything for advent?

Advent kind of seems like the mystery liturgical season because there’s not much said about it (from what I can find).

My wife and I bring out the advent wreath every year and light the candle(s) for that week when we eat supper. I think that’s about the extent of it.

My wife used to do advent calendars when she was little. I guess I never really understood the point of it.[/quote:29jue1nq]
Advent calenders are used to count the days of Advent. The ones we had growing up showed different pictures of the Nativity that you could reflect on. It also helps build the anticipation for Christmas Day.
