December 12th is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe and December 13th is the Feast of St. Lucy, two special days in the middle of Advent that our family observes. You can click away on the links below to see how our family honors Our Lady and St. Lucy on these dates. There are some book lists as well as craft and food ideas for you from posts past. And, in the event that you have children old enough to do their own decorating, you can read all about how we allow our kids to decorate their bedrooms for the Christmas holidays. Lastly, I’ve included an old post of classic Christmas books for children. When I was a new mom, I used to read a couple of blogs about living out the liturgical year at home. This was about ten years ago when there weren’t nearly as many blogs as there are now, so it wasn’t as overwhelming. I took some of these bloggers’ ideas and made them my own. There were plenty of things that these catholic moms did that I haven’t tried. I just took away from their posts the things that worked for my family and I left the rest. I hope that’s what you do too! Bonnie and Kathryn have said it best when it comes to “Doing Advent” ┬áthe way that works in your Domestic Church.
