When I was up in NJ, visiting my folks and my sister, we went through some boxes in the attic, and one of the delightful things we found was an old photocopy of something called A Christmas Kit.
It's a lovely, very simple way to prepare your heart for Christmas by "building a crib" for Baby Jesus there. That might sound sentimental, but it's actually both lovely and practical. It's only about three sentences each day, which for me makes it extra practical! I was trying to figure out a way to put it on the blog, and I was delighted to find that it already exists in many places on the internet.
So here's a little Advent present for you, all wrapped up as a PDF!
