As you noticed from my recent posts on The Gift of the Liturgical Year and the season of Advent, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about holy days. Partly because I’m so excited about our new link up: Little HolyDays: Redeeming Time with Feasts, Fasts, Holidays, and Everyday! It’s being hosted by over here at Carrots for Michaelmas and with Tammy and Hannah of Dualing Moms and Molly of Molly Makes Do.
We want to encourage and inspire each other to observe the liturgical year to deepen our families’ faith and build up the domestic church (especially during this Year of Faith!) by sharing posts about observing feast days, liturgical seasons, and more in the Christian Year.
We hope you’ll participate by linking up with your posts (old or new!) that have to do with the season of advent, including (but certainly not limited to!):
- simple holidays traditions
- crafts and activities
- reflections and essays on the season
- food and recipes
- sustainability and responsible gift giving/food
- teaching and learning about the Christian Year with children
Our first linkup will open Monday, December 3rd, and might include posts on topics such as:
- the season of Advent
- the first and second Sundays of Advent
- the Feast of St. Nicholas
- the Feast of the Immaculate Conception
We hope to share seasonal reflections, ideas for family togetherness, crafts, recipes, and anything else that might come to mind.
The link up will be up until that Thursday evening, December 6th. There will be a new link up open the following Monday, December 10th, and we will highlight some of our favorite links from the previous week in the new post, and on a Little HolyDays Pinterest board.
For the three of us, this link up is a way in which we plan on exploring and deepening our Catholic faith, but we would really love to hear from bloggers of all denominations.
We welcome you to share your own feast, festivals, and celebrations that fall within each week of December.
As moderators of this link up, we will reserve the right to remove any offensive or off-topic posts as we see fit, in order to maintain a positive and understanding atmosphere.
We would love to have you join in with your posts. We would be eternally grateful if you would tell your own readers about this new link up, which will be accessible from each of our blogs on December 3rd.
Looking forward to encouraging and inspiring each other!
Haley, Hannah, Molly, and Tammy
