Those of you in the Christian community know that Advent began yesterday. Advent is the season leading up to Christmas and begins on the fourth Sunday prior to Christmas. During this time, Christians anticipate and prepare for the celebration of the birth of Christ. Some could say it usual begins the first Sunday after Black Friday. What a contrast - a "holiday" celebrating greed and getting stuff and a "holy day" celebrating sacrifice and giving. The people at Advent Conspiracy want those within the Church to see this season with new eyes. Instead of spending our time and money shopping for and buying things that most people don't want or need, they challenge us to make this season meaningful by giving our time and money to those who really need it. Go to the website, check it out, and join the conspiracy.
