It's Not Even Advent . . . for heaven's sake!

Well, they waited until after All Saints and All Souls, but the commercialism of Our Lord's birth has begun.

I saw my first Christmas commercial today.

And Advent hasn't even started yet.

Good things come to those who wait . . .
Enjoy Ordinary Time a little longer.



  1. LoL agreed... but I get people saying that to me too when I do start putting up stuff at Advent. In the Maronite Catholic Church Advent starts 2 weeks earlier than yalls does! No ordinary time either, but that's beside the point lol.

  2. I didn't know that. Very interesting. Do you have an Advent wreath with two additional candles?

    Thanks for writing!

  3. Sorry forgot your blog wont email replies to me lol. No I don't... The Advent Wreath is a Roman custom not a Maronite one.. But its one I grew up with (was raised Roman) and I love. So I do have an Advent Wreath, but we can't use it correctly. My husband & I have talked about having one made... will have to adjust everything a bit lol. Would be a nice family trad though.
