Advent Calendars – Calendarios de Adviento.

I’m not religious. To me the winter holidays are all about Family and sharing but I still enjoy making an advent calendar and counting back the days. Partly for tradition’s sake, I always had one as a kid, and partly because the kids enjoy it. Here are a few of my favourite handmade calendars that I found on the web:
No soy religiosa. Para mi, las vacaciones de invierno significan familia y compartir pero todavía me gusta hacer un calendario de adviento. En parte por tradición ya que siempre tuve uno de niña, y en parte porque los niños disfrutan mucho contando atrás los días. Aquí están algunos de mis favoritos calendarios hechos a mano que encontré por internet:

I loved the idea above for this calendar. Although cute, it’s the random acts of kindness that got me!
Me encantó esta idea. No solo es bonito el calendario, pero los actos de bondad maravillosos.

Tomorrow I’ll share the advent calendar I made this year!
Mañana comparto el calendario que hice para este año.

    Me encantan los calendarios de adviento. Nunca he tenido ninguno; no sé si sería capaz de abrir cada sorpresa el día que corresponde ¡¡o la sacaría todas de golpe!! ¡Qué intriga!
    Me gustan mucho los que nos enseñas; son sencillos pero muy bonitos.
    Un beso.

  4. Son muy lindos todos, yo nunca he tenido ni he hecho un calendario, pero este año me parece una buena idea para hacer con el peque de la casa. Tomo nota! Te he escrito un email, lo has recibido? estoy interesada en un kit de teñir y unos botes de bálsamo labial.
    Me ha gustado mucho conocerte, besitos…..

    I love comments: Discussion alawys clarifies and sharpens my thinking.I’m not sure I would describe the history of the church quite as strongly as an accumulation of errors : Yes, clarity and doctrine have been lost, but I agree that we have gained a rich legacy from more recent believers and writers (As a literature scholar and teacher, I would be lost without Milton and Eliot.) Nor am I completely comfortable with the label primitivist . Much as I am looking forward to reading about our faith in its original context, I do not feel that the modern church should follow some practices for no other reason than that the early church held them (I am sure that you did not mean this, but it is an argument I hear quite often where I am from, and so I wanted to clarify.) Among other things, I do like navigating a Bible with chapters!That said, I still believe that essential truths and practices in the Christian church are often obscured by the time periods in which we live. To give a third example, certain groups of Americans have made their faith a deeply political affair. While they are certainly not the first believers ever to do so (witness Dante himself), the politicized version of the faith is sometimes far different from what Christianity should be like. American believers sometimes think that they can change the world for Christ by changing American cultures and laws (I know this, because I was once just such an American.) Important as political action is, I later learned that such action is only tangential to our faith and added by our culture; doing justly and loving mercy is at the heart of it. I am deeply grateful for the heritage of Christian saints throughout the ages, as well as the refinements and improvements made in the church. But I am also, as I stated, eager to step out of the cultural confusion for a moment and see my faith more clearly.
