Partridge in a Pear Tree

We are anxiously awaiting the first day of Christmas, and thoroughly enjoying our Advent with all of its feasts that punctuate the quiet preparation.  We are, once again, utterly failing at keeping up the Christmas Novena.  But this year, I have it printed, framed and displayed on a side table in the dining room (where we spend most of our time).  So if we walk past and say the prayer a few times a day, that is a vast improvement.

How are you preparing for the coming of the Christ Child?
