Home And Family Preparation For Advent And The Things To Consider For The Preparation.
Unlike Catholics who will actually prepare themselves for the feast of Christmas by watching movies of saints, movies about cooking, nativity scenes or even the advent wreaths, many people will always prepare adequately for the feast by prayers, daily devotions, novenas and also to some extend fasting as they wait for the day actually done within four weeks.
The first one which is about the prayer should be highly accepted since during this busy times many things may happen and they can only be defended through prayers, arrange time for prayers and meditation in order for you to adequately prepare yourself for the day. The preparation does not only mean having individual organized prayers only, you can set aside some days for family devotions and if so consider advent wreath since it is one of the best tools In devotions, each week gather around your wreath with your whole family to pray then you may decide to light candle around your wreath and by doing this you will act as an example which your children will copy from and practice it in future. Another important way to prepare adequately for the Christmas feast is setting up nativity programs in your family in whereby you will involve the things which happened during the day of Christmas in your narration, they may involve including the three wise men in your narration, baby Jesus in the narration and maybe the father and mother of the baby, by doing so you will also be creating a strong foundation o the young ones.
Spending time together with your family during the advent season is another very important thing to consider and actually this can be enhanced by watching movies together, cooking together and also playing car and board games together.
The decorations and cooking involved in our homes during the advent season make this day to be missed and loved by many people in the community, remember to decorate your home effectively by hanging lights and greenery in the house since we are waiting for a king to be born, it is always pleasing and people tend to memorize the day in their minds in their whole life. During this period it is very important to be generous, do not through the poor people in your community away as a matter of fact invite them to your home so as you may share what you have with them since Christ Himself showed love to us as the scriptures say.
