Yesterday was the first day of the Advent. My husband and I didn’t grow up observing the liturgical calendar, but we decided we wanted to teach our son some of the more traditional observances of Christmas, starting with an Advent Wreath.
There’s no delicate way to write this: most Advent Wreaths I’ve seen are tacky. I don’t like the look of them. Then a friend sent me a link to an advent wreath on City Cradle Design. I realized I could make a “wreath” that worked esthetically in my house and was actually pretty.
