Next Sunday is the start of Advent, the beginning of the liturgical calendar. Christians light an Advent wreath as a symbol of the meaning of the seasons. If you are religious, discuss the importance of Advent.

I’m religious. In fact my entire family is religious. This is why I think Advent is important: It sets our minds on Jesus. It reminds us not to be greedy, but to be giving to others. It’s the perfect amount of time (roughly a month) to get ready for Christmas. Finally, Advent and Christmas songs enlighten your spirit in all times, even in hard times. We can celebrate again the first coming of a baby. We can also await the final coming of Jesus as our King (On the last day)!
