Adequately Preparing Your Home And Family For Advent.
There are many different ways in which people are able to wait for the Christ and this time for Christmas feast is what is actually preferred to advent, these ways may include praying, daily devotions, novenas and fasting although to the Catholics it may be a little bit different where they involve advent wreath, nativity scenes, Christmas movies among many movies about cooking or saints.
Proper preparation for the Christmas feast need to be taken into consideration and by this one may organize personal prayers or even family prayers to put the day on the most high to protect the members since during this time many things may happen and also remember we they will celebrate the newborn baby Jesus Christ so they should be clean of sin before it, prayers will always purify people’s hearts and all will be well. In every family there must be children and therefore it is good for the family to organize family devotions something which will stay in their children’s mind for many years and then they will follow the footprints of their parents, the devotions can be done in advent wreath and candles lit around the wreath some weeks around four before the Christmas feast. 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.
There are different ways in which people can interact together and freely in the family during the advent season some being through cooking together, watching movies and also playing together, this creates a strong bond between the members of the family and therefore there will always be unity within the family.
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. Also arrange on proper cooking of meals during that day day putting in mind that we are preparing for the coming king, sharing is very important In fact try inviting different people from different communities to come and eat with you just as the Christ himself used to do the people.
