Today is the first day of our Christmas countdown.
The Wheel of nature turns towards Yule and the Winter solstice celebrations
on December 22nd, and for Christians advent begins on the first
Sunday of December.
Advent meaning 'the coming', is a month full of expectation, anticipation
and preparation for the winter solstice/Yule/Christmas
- Christmas is coming! Enjoy the anticipation of opening our online
advent calendar every day this month. Advent
Greetings and blessings.
A misty December morning at Stonehenge
In a drear-nighted December,
Too happy, happy tree,
Thy branches ne'er remember
Their green felicity:
The north cannot undo them,
With a sleety whistle through them;
Nor frozen thawings glue them
From budding at the prime.
John Keats (1818–9)
