The People's Friend - - Chat 55 -


I have no ob­jec­tion to choco­late Ad­vent cal­en­dars as long as peo­ple re­mem­ber that they are count­ing down to the com­ing of Christ, not of Christ­mas!


I used to love the lit­tle pic­tures when I was a kid. I swear they were more ex­cit­ing than choco­late – I can still re­mem­ber what they looked like.


I sent Ad­vent colour­ing books to grand­chil­dren. A Christ­mas colour­ing-in page ev­ery day.


Ask a child today what Christ­mas is about and they will say Santa Claus and lots of pre­sents – par­ents don’t even tell them the Christ­mas story any more.


I like an Ad­vent can­dle my­self, but I know the chil­dren like choco­late ones. I have bought my grand­chil­dren a puz­zle one – a dif­fer­ent game or project to do each day.
