Please note that while this book does have Christian content, I've also sought to include alternate ideas for those who do not celebrate the religious side of Christmas. Also, these books do not contain celebrations of the Advent saints (St. Nicholas, Santa Lucia, etc).



The first light of Advent is the light of stone--.
Stones that live in crystals, seashells, and bones.

The second light of Advent is the light of plants--
Plants that reach up to the sun and in the breezes dance.

The third light of Advent is the light of beasts--
All await the birth, from the greatest and in least.

The fourth light of Advent is the light of humankind--
The light of hope that we may learn to love and understand.
