Here's the latest in my "Knot Bad Video" series*. And watch out, world! I'm getting pretty confident with my Windows Movie Maker skills.
This time around I talk about some really simple, easy ideas for keeping Advent in your home. Think of this as a tutorial for a bare minimum Advent with a couple of other super simple ideas thrown in, just in case you're looking for a couple of uncomplicated things to do. The summary is this: at least get an Advent wreath and if you want to celebrate any of the feast days just eat a cookie.

The Lisa Hendey book I mention in the video is O Radiant Dawn: 5 Minute Prayers Around the Advent Wreath. (That's an affiliate link but it costs $1.12 on Amazon!)
Also, if you're looking for more Advent-y ideas please check out my Advent series page. There's lots of good stuff there, reflections on the season, recipes, book suggestions, music, and peeks into the homes of other Catholic women.
Finally, here's a little Advent playlist I like to listen to as I keep my Christmas music at bay for just a wee bit longer - it's like having my cake and eating it too!
