It’s almost that time of the year again. The shopping centres get crowded, fairy lights get tangled in the living room and let’s face it, it’s the only time of the year where one can sit in front of a tree and eat candy out of socks.

There are two seasons for this upcoming time of the Christian calendar – Advent, which begins four Sundays prior to Christmas and finishes on Christmas Eve. Then there is the period of Christmas, which begins on Christmas Eve and lasts for twelve days, finishing on January the 6th. Advent in itself is the preparation for the coming of our Savior and a reminder of how much we need the Lord in our lives.

As many Christmas events start to unfold around us locally and throughout the world, there is one particular one that always catches my eye – Advent u Zagrebu.

We are given the opportunity to ponder these virtues each week during the season which serve to guide us in spiritually preparing for the celebration of the birth of our Savior. It’s also a great opportunity to apply these reflections to our everyday life and not just let it be a ‘Christmas’ thing where as soon as the new year comes, it’s forgotten about and we move onto our New Years resolution to take up one more gym class, post a picture on Facebook as proof of lifting up that weight and then give it up until the following year.

Whether you do get the fortunate opportunity to visit Advent u Zagrebu and take part in the great celebration with the Croatian community or whether you’ll only be able to make your local Christmas carols, the spirit of Christmas is indeed everywhere.
