The Christan world and Advent


With the Advent season upon us, I was actually wondering which Christians celebrate it? Is it just Catholics, the liturgical churches, or who?

(Also, I didn’t know quite where to put this, but I realized how much I love Advent today with the whole symbolisms of a dark world joyfully anticipating the coming of our Savior…what do the rest of you think about Advent?)


Good question, I asusme all Christians celebrate Advent and the coming of Jesus as it’s in the Bible?


An evangelical church in my area just announced they will celebrate Advent this year - ‘a new tradition’ ! They are starting it this coming Sunday though. Not sure if that was an intentional move to not mimic the Catholic Church’s timing.
