Pre-Holiday Links and Resources -Advent 2018 and Christmas

With Thanksgiving this week, Advent is following quickly behind it!

But besides the busy preparation for Christmas, there are a lot of things we can do to really observe the season of Advent! Over the years I have collected links and resources for the holidays that I thought would help me and my family prepare our hearts and spirits to celebrate the birth of Baby Jesus.  I haven't done everything on this list.  Some of it is a wish list, but there was something in every link that I thought was worthwhile.

Perhaps first on the list is actually getting our homes ready for the holidays:
Holiday Grand Plan or join their Yahoo Group E-mail List Declutter and Clean!
Also DeClutter and Organize on Facebook. 

and get your planner ready~  Advent and Christmas Planner from Catholic Icing or Advent Planner from Wildflower and Marbles.

When I was going through my mother's things, I found her Breviary. It is old, but in very good condition.

january 2010 004

january 2010 003

It was published in 1941 and she used it before she got married as her maiden name is in the front cover.

Mom's Breviary

It also seems that it was published by a religious order.

Mom's Breviary

I've been reading january 2010 003 for help. But it seems that some of the things mentioned in the book aren't in our little Breviary - like a table of contents for one. But on the other hand it hasn't been too hard to find out where to start and end each session.

Mom also had the book for Lent in the 4 volume series. I haven't found the other three volumes and I don't know if she even had those. But, Mr. Pete and I have decided that we are going to stick it out with this little Breviary until Lent and then maybe purchase the one for ordinary time after that and just get the other volumes as we need them.
