Advent is one of my favorite times of the year. To us, it’s more than a countdown to Christmas. Advent is a time to pause and reflect, to anticipate and wait for the goodness that is Christmas and its message. Advent is a celebration of love.

Each year, we celebrate Advent as a family, doing fun, festive things together each and every day leading up to Christmas. With Margot’s first Christmas, we’re making sure to include her in our Advent festivities.

In the Hispanic culture, we don’t do much on Christmas Day. That day is mostly reserved for lounging and resting. That’s because the real party happens on the 24th. We refer to Christmas Eve as “Noche Buena,” which means “good night.” Everyone gets in on the party — from the smallest of babes to the abuelitas.
