Does that seem like a funny title for a blog in November? Well, the first Sunday of Advent is November 30th!

Although my book, Through The Eyes Of Love, isn't a traditional Christmas book it is set during the holiday season and one of the character's misses their family Advent celebrations.

Have you ever thought about doing a family activity each Sunday of the Advent season? Something relaxing with your family that lets you focus on the REAL reason of the Christmas holiday verses the hustle, bustle and commericialism? You could use any of the activities my characters family did (you'll have to read the book to find out what they were) or come up with your own. You could keep to the theme that each candle represents, Hope, Love, Peace or Joy or just go back to simplier activities like stringing popcorn or a day spent at the ice skating rink.

Please feel free to share any thoughts you have on this topic with me!

Wishing you a holiday season filled with Thanksgiving and Love,

Rose Ross Zediker

I like your idea about doing a different activity every Sunday of Advent. I've heard so many people say lately that they are dreading the coming holiday season. It has evolved into an overwhelming ordeal rather than a season of joy and peace. We need to cut back on the shopping and parties and spend some quiet time with our families.
