    1. Thanks, San, that sounds so much like what most Americans do. I do it the German way, I do like to keep advent and Christmas apart.

  6. I'm wondering, do you take off lessons during Advent? We did several years ago when our children were younger. But this year I have lessons planned for the first two weeks of Advent. Then off the last two weeks of Advent to finish Christmas preparations. But now that Advent is upon us, I'm reconsidering. Thoughts?

    Thanks and Advent blessings,
    Barbara

    1. We do, but not the first two weeks. We normally do less work, it happens automatically with all the Christmas preparations and social events, but I try to do some work. The college is also in session for about two more weeks which makes it easier to maintain at least a resemblance of a schedule. You could do just school in the mornings and Advent/Christmas related things in the afternoons. When my children were smaller, I sometimes also took off more time, but now, with high school, that is not possible anymore.
