Making Advent chains

To help us celebrate this special time of Advent, we have been making paper chains to help us countdown to Christmas - the coming of Jesus. Our chains have special links to show each of the four Advent Sundays in the run up to Christmas and also remind us what each Sunday represents - Hope (God's people), Peace (The Prophets), Love (John the Baptist) and Joy (Mary - mother of Jesus). The final link is white and can be placed on the Christmas tree as it represents Jesus - the Light of the World.

As we tear a link of each day, it shows us that Christmas is getting nearer...

Merry Christmas to all of our friends and family. May this season bring your lots of joy and happiness!
