O Come O Come Emmanuel

I made my first Holy Communion during Advent 1974, and that was the processional song.  It's the first time I remember hearing it--at any rate it's when I learned the words--and so hearing it this time of year has a little bit of extra significance for me!

Besides which, I love Advent.  As anyone who has followed this blog knows, because I've said so a lot!  And although I haven't set out an Advent wreath as yet, and may or may not manage a Jesse Tree, I won't be decorating the house for Christmas for at least two weeks, as our family savors this waiting time of year.

Since I have written on this topic so much in the past, I thought I would collect them all right here for those who are interested.

More Advent Memories

A couple of the above posts contain links to guest posts I did on my friend Lacey's blog, Living on Love.  Lacey does an Advent series each year, and I will provide a link to my contribution for this year when it appears.

If you celebrate Advent, tell me about it in the comments!
