If you're anything like I am, as soon as the 4th Advent candle is lit, you get a little giddy in anticipation of the Christmas celebration. Throughout the pre-Christmas time we experience joyous preludes to the holiday: preparation of tasty baked items , decorating the house, getting things spruced up for festive gatherings of family and friends, finishing up Christmas gift projects for those we hold dear (and dropping vague hints here and there to help build the suspense). The closer we get to the 25th or even the 24th, the Advent wreath seems to fade away and the Christmas tree becomes our center of attention: what magic this season brings! May you all enjoy a blessed and happy Christmas celebration wherever you are, and may the hope of the Incarnation accompany you all throughout Christmastide and the New Year. Merry Christmas from The Vermilion Bay Yarn Company, YOUR local yarn shop!
