Advent, Day 2: Wreath Making

Advent, Day 2

We have had such a great amount of snow…

so much so, that the country ground to a halt, and Fergal couldn’t get to work yesterday…

so he “brought work home“: every year there is a sale of work to raise money for people with disabilities, and Fergal and his colleagues make wreaths and other handcrafts to sell on the day.

They spent a good part of the day gathering the greenery, then assembling the wreaths, adding ribbons, and dried flowers.

Michael made one for our door-

(Don’t you just love the ripped jeans??!!)

I love how our family have started our own traditions, and they bring rhythm and comfort to each passing year; this is one of them- to hang a wreath on the first day of Advent.

Of course, when I get another camera, I will show you some photos of our beautifully adorned front door!
