Advent Reflection – Preparation
Christmas can be a busy time. There are decorations to put up, gifts to wrap and some event that always needs a sweet treat or other good made. Then there are event to attend and family to see. It can be so easy to get caught up in all of the stuff of Christmas that we overlook the actual meaning.

Repost: Christmas Stuff
When I was in grad school there was a house near campus that had an eclectic Christmas display. It started out with a normal light display. One year the residents didn't take the Christmas lights down. Instead they added seasonal decorations throughout the year. They would just leave up the previous seasonal/holiday decorations. Eventually the entire yard became a huge mash-up of lights and "holiday" themed inflatables. I think one year I even saw live animals. The most notable was the Easter bunny next to the Shepherds in the nativity scene.
