Advent and Christmas Mega Links and Resources for

If you have a resource that you think would be a good addition, please feel free to send it to me at elljazz@gmail.com

Holiday Grand Plan
or join their Yahoo Group Holiday Grand Plan

and get your planner ready~   Advent Planner

and of course - the holiday before the season Christ the King!

For more links and ideas, please see my Advent and Christmas Page at the top of this blog- see here



Also, for a wonderful music for Advent and Christmas, I recommend this new CD from the Peace Together Choir.  Mr. Pete and I both participated on this with our friends in the Peace Together Choir. Also available on Amazon!
