What is Advent? Advent is the reason there is a Christmas. The definition for advent is the waiting on the arrival of something important. As Christians we are waiting for the day we celebrate the birth of the Christ child. We celebrate the arrival he has made and the one we anticipate of His return.
What is Christmas? It is the commercialization that we, and I mean Christians too, have used to celebrate the birth of our Savior. I have been guilty of taking the CHRIST out of Christmas. As a child we did not have a lot, so here comes my children and I just want to give and give and give and give ............ I have done a disservice to them, myself, and most of all my Christ.
