Advent 2009

Freezing temperatures, snow-capped mountains, bare tree branches and frozen ponds.
Evergreen wreaths, garlands of cedar and beautiful ornaments.
Gingerbread, fudge, fruitcake, baking (well not until the range is connected), gift lists, cards to be sent.
Candlelight, Nativity plays, carols, special meals and Christmas bazaars.
All a part of the Advent and Christmas season here in the PNW--
but it is so very much more.
To read about the significance of Advent, a season of preparation, and to check out some links with online Advent calendars and related info see my post from Advent 2008 (links updated for 2009):
Note: Sorry this is late; I am backdating it to the first day of Advent 09 which was this past Sunday, November 29th.
