This is one of my favorite, yet honestly, least successfully implemented tradition of the year. I usually forget first to purchase candles for our traditional (aka circle shaped to represent God having no end and no beginning) advent wreath. Next, I never remember to get the fresh greens, which was a no-brainer for many years as we belonged to a Church who had a family advent building event every year. Lastly, once I get it assembled then comes the gathering the family every night to light the candles and pray. Even when we share a meal (as we did this evening) and with the Advent - um stick -- in the middle of the table we STILL forgot to light the candles and pray. Though in my defense, candles were lit but that was for my son, Ian's 19th birthday and we always pray before eating so at least we got that much accomplished. My family jokes that if I ever got it, 'perfect' it would cease to be our family tradition!
