Vacation during Advent
I have made a few discoveries about going on holiday during Advent. Christmas shopping is still not done even though Christmas is only 9 days away, Christmas cards have not even been thought about, still need to get copies printed of a family photo (can't use the ones that Disney took since their prices are beyond outrageous per photo), we 'lost' our Advent traditions because we were too busy and too tired in Florida (so no Advent wreath w/devotions and we got way behind with Bartholomew's Passage - guess we'll pick that back up next year) and I still need to finish planning the Christmas menu.
So it was a definite trade-off in order to have family time for making memories but we didn't forget our Lord during our vacation - we went to Mass both weekends and on the Holy Day.
