Question:  Why do we celebrate Advent?

     Advent, which means "to come", is a four week period prior to Christmas. It's a time to celebrate Christ Jesus' coming - first as a child in Bethlehem and second as the Savior who comes to fulfill God's plan of salvation. The color of the season is purple or blue, signifying royalty. The hope of this season is that we'll get ourselves ready for our Lord's coming - and that we'll stay ready for when he comes again.
