This past Sunday was the first day of advent, the first day of the liturgical year in Christian tradition for the new year. Our church is decorated with Christmas wreath with five candles representing one candle per week that we light up. Therefore, I say to you Happy New Year!
Also in the Jewish tradition, the first day of Hanukkah that started at sundown. To all that belongs to the Jewish faith, I say to you “Hanukkah Sameach!” (Happy Hanukkah).
Advent means Christmas is coming and we all know what Christmas is all about, right?
Shopping. Buy. Buy. Buy! Planning, Baking. Party. Dinners. Drinking. Cooking. Decorating. Cards. Caroling. Stress. I dare not say wrong.
I used to do these activities. I changed. Not just me. My family, too. We no longer get carried away with this hype for my own well being instead truly celebrate what Christmas is all about in our faith-filled tradition.
In all moments, in different parts of the world, in various time zone; Christmas is celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
