Morehouse Publishing From Holidays to Holy Days: A Benedictine Walk through Advent

Rather than criticizing trappings of the holiday season, this book looks at them from the viewpoint of Christian contemplation. The author, a Benedictine monk, invites the reader to join him on his daily walks as he points out dozens of often-unnoticed connections between our holidays and the spiritual meaning of Advent and Christmas.

In a string of colored lights, a crowd of shoppers, or the window of a toy store, he uncovers such traditional Advent themes as watchful waiting, repentance, and selfless love. On the bustling sidewalks, he introduces us to Isaiah, John the Baptist, and Jesus himself, all speaking their ancient Advent and Christmas messages of peace and hope and good will. Paperback.

I love everything about Christmas.....decorations, candles, trees, lights, Christmas cookies. I love it all. This book puts all of my favorite things about Christmas in perspective with Scripture. I love how the author ties it all together. I plan on using this book every year for Advent.
