For the last two years it's been fantastic to join with bloggers around the world in taking a weekly break from the pressure and whirl of Christmas preparation. We've called the event A Pause in Advent, and the aim is to take some time out from the build-up and to share what is really important to us as Christmas approaches.This is what I wrote the first year, and I think it still fits now:
"We are getting together to share thoughts, traditions, ideas, crafts and experiences relating to Advent and the preparation for Christmas. Some of us follow very old traditions or have very established beliefs, whilst many of us are combining the old with the new, learning and growing as we go along…"
It would be lovely if you'd like to join us in posting on Sundays or Mondays in Advent. Anything goes, and you don't need to apologise if you miss a week (or more). Have a look through my previous Advent posts (they should be listed in the linky do-dah below) if you want to learn more, and leave a comment here if you'd like to join in this year!
PS Forgot to say - please do take this photo and use it in your own blog sidebar or your posts with a link!
