Advent

Today is the 3rd advent. No idea what this means? A lot of people celebrating advent sometimes do not know, what it is actually about. So, here comes the info:

Advent (Latin adventus “arrival”), actually adventus Domini (Latin for arrival of the Lord), denotes the season in which Christianity prepares for the feast of the birth of Jesus Christ, Christmas. At the same time, Advent reminds Christians to expect the second coming of Jesus Christ. According to Catholic and Protestant tradition, Advent begins with Vespers on the eve of the first Sunday in Advent and with it the new church year.

Quite interesting, huh? 🙂
