Well before I was even dating Daddy-O, I purchased the book The 25 Days of Christmas by Rebecca Hayford Bauer (published September 1994). It has since been updated and re-titled Just 25 Days ‘Til Christmas: An Advent Celebration for the Entire Family. Each day has a short devotion, a song, suggested activities, and tips for making your holidays less hectic. The watercolor artwork is whimsical and fun. One of our family’s favorite features is the devotions incorporating the tradition of lighting the candles of Advent Wreath.
I cannot imagine celebrating the season without this book.
