one of our favorite seasonal waldorf traditions has always been celebrating the weeks of advent. we're entering week three now, so i wanted to share a few images from our first two weeks:
the first light of advent is the light of stones
light that lives 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...
we've also been lighting the candle that maya made (at our school's recent winter fair) each evening at mealtime, saying our evening advent verse...
winter is dark
yet each tiny spark
brightens the way,
to christmas day.
shine little light
and show us the way,
to the bright, bright light
of christmas day.
we also very much enjoyed our annual winter fair this year...making candles, ornaments and pinecone gnomes!
much more handwork, merry-making and festivities still to share - more to come!
