Welcome to the Spoke and Feather Advent Calendar

Advent Day 22

Joy to the World

Change of plans, instead of O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, here's a recording with our wonderful Lilly. We asked her what her favorite thing about Christmas was and she said, "Being with my family."

Activity: Stenciled SackCloth Towels

 Use pre-made stencils or your own design (I cut mine out from a file folder)

Arguably, not the most important step, but it looks pretty, doesn't it?

Advent Day 23

O Holy Night

Emily's sister loves this song. Some people feel it's often overdone, and it can lose some of its emotional impact when performed in a showy manner. There are many rich points in this melody that grip the listener and build to a massive culmination. It's exactly how we'll feel on Christmas.

Activity: Hug a Loved One

This one is easy

Find a loved one and give them a warm hug. Tell them you love them.

Advent Day 24

Wexford Lullaby

It's Christmas Eve and I guess, most importantly, people should sing with their parents as much as possible. 


We don't often get Mary's perspective in a lot of things. This is her prophetic vision and a moment of peace between her and her child. Super important. Super beautiful.

ACTIVITY: Share Your Thoughts

Christmas Day!
