Advent Table Week 3

Advent Table Week 3

Coming of the Animals

This third Sunday of Advent we add the animals from our ceramic Nativity Scene. We have used these same figures since the children were tiny. 

We celebrated the third Sunday of Advent by:
  • Put the animals and Shepherd on the table
  • Turn the lights down low
  • Read chapters 12,13,14 & 15 from the Festival of Stones by Reg Down.  "Mice on Ice, The Gathering, The Festival of Animals Begins, and The Myth of Ellah-Jah."
  • The 3rd child chooses a Christmas carol and we sing the first, second and third weeks carols together as a family.
  • My daughter and I play a Christmas carol on our soprano recorders.
  • My daughter plays a Christmas carol on the flute and piano.
  • Light the candles on the table. We do this every night during Advent.
  • Put up a star.  The children rotate nightly to do this during Advent.
  • Say the Unity Prayer of Faith.  We do this every night during Advent.
  • Blow out the candles and off to bed
We also hear the story of Santa Lucia and prepare for the celebration the next day.
