We love traditions and family rituals, so it’s no surprise that when the winter holidays come around, we get really excited. Surprisingly, we have come to enjoy Advent just as much or more than Christmas. Traditionally, Advent includes the four Sundays leading up to Christmas, and it’s a time of preparation and waiting. But the anticipation is half the fun, and there is a lot of meaningful symbolism to Advent that we love. We searched for the musthave advent essentials for you and your family, to make this busy season meaningful and cozy.
