We light candles and always have a reading, some years from an Advent book and some years verses from the Bible that coordinate with the days leading up to Christmas.

…). And of course, the vintage music sheet wreath adds the crowning touch to the wall’s Christmas transformation and blends with the tabletop scene. So far it’s held up really well in storage after making it two years ago – it only needed a bit of unbending on the ends to make an appearance for it’s third Christmas and it’s still one of my favorite things.
