12 Days:Box of Cheer Winner


Welcome to my second year of 12 Days, a celebration of the Holiday season! I have some really fun things to share with you guys and some cool prizes. My guide for this event is this wonderful book:

I received this book for free last year as an e-book from Barnes & Noble. The holiday season always seems to go by so quickly! The tips in this book really help you to slow down and enjoy the spirit of the season. This is a faith based book, but I didn't find it overly preachy. I incorporate a lot of Winter Solstice activities into my Winter celebrations but I still found some meaningful passages and insights in this book that will appeal to everyone that celebrates the season :)

Today's tip is to add the ritual of ADVENT into your celebrations. As children time seemed to move so SLOW during December, I could remember marking little X's on the calendar and well WAITING! As adults stopping each day for a bit of meditation or even a bit of chocolate from a calender can bring a sense of calm and balance to the season.

This year I'm marking the Advent a little differently:

I'm a huge Star Wars fan, so when I heard about this Lego Advent Calendar I was so excited. I'll confess I've already opened one or two of the little squares but I wont be putting any of the toys together till the first. This small little ritual everyday is sure to be a nice break from the hectic season and a lot of fun. Hope you find a way to mark the Advent in your own special way :)
