It is interesting that Catholics and other Christians dedicate entire seasons to reflect about “waiting.” Advent is one of them. So is Lent, which will soon be upon us! What are you waiting for this Advent? What to do while we wait?
The Advent calendar with one tab or box to open each day for 24 or 25 days taps into something people really like: countdowns. It also highlights the anticipation that is at the heart of the four-week liturgical season of Advent.
In Trinidad, groups of parang singers, meaning “group of serenaders” and musicians, called paranderos, go house to house during the evenings of the Advent and Christmas seasons, expecting no food or monetary compensation.
Using whichever social medium you prefer (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), challenge yourself, or challenge a friend, to post a photo or short reflection each day during Advent that reflects the Word of the Day shown in the graphic.
