As Thanksgiving rolls to Christmas, one of the best traditions of the season is often overlooked: Advent. Advent counts the four Sundays in preparation for Christmas. In Scandinavian homes, four candles are laid out on the table, and one more is lit every Sunday. As the weeks progress, anticipation of the coming holiday builds. I can remember as a child waiting all afternoon as the sky darkened, until at dinner we could light the candles and open another door on the advent calendar. These are stolen moments, too: a few peaceful minutes of contemplations and gratitude in the midst of the busy end of the year.
