The lights are up and the tree is decorated. We are now ready for Christmas to begin!
Today at church, during the children's homily, Fr. Tom was telling the children about the advent wreath, and explaining how we light a new candle each week of Advent as we await the coming Christmas.
Uncharacteristically, Eddie blurted out, "Why do we need to light four candles? Let's just have Christmas now!" Usually, it's Lucas who gets the crowd at church rolling with laughter.
The real reason, Eddie, that we wait four weeks for Christmas is so that your dad has time to get all the lights on the house before Christmas arrives!
