Advent Sunday 2022: The four Sundays as well as weeks leading up to Christmas are known as Advent (or, perhaps, the first of December through Christmas!). Latin’s word for “coming” is advent. Jesus’ entry into the world is represented by this. The four Sundays as well as weeks of Advent are used by Christians to prepare for and recall the true meaning of Christmas.
Christians use the word “coming” in three different ways throughout Advent. The first and most well-known occurred when Jesus entered the world as a newborn and lived a human life before dying on the cross for us. The second is currently possible because Jesus want to enter our life. The third will take place when Jesus returns to the the future world as King as well as Judge, not as a baby.
Advent Sunday can fall on any day between November 27 (as it did in 2016) and December 3 (as it did in 2017)! Only when Christmas Day is on a Wednesday (as it was in 2019) does Advent begin on December 1st!
Nobody exactly knows when Advent was first observed, but it may be traced to at least 567, when monks were instructed to fast throughout the month of December before Christmas.
To assist them focus on getting ready to welcome Jesus’s arrival, some people choose to fast (not eat anything) throughout the season of advent. Advent, also known as the Nativity Fast, is a 40-day period that begins on November 15 in many Orthodox as well as Eastern Catholic churches. The beginning of Advent in Celtic Christianity is November 15th.
During Advent, Orthodox Christians frequently abstain from eating meat, dairy products, and, depending on the day, olive oil, wine, and fish. With the help of this calendar from of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, you can determine what foods to eat on which days.
A primitive version of Nativity scenes known as “advent pictures” or a “vessel cup” existed in areas of England throughout the pre-and early-medieval eras. They were indeed a box with two dolls standing in for Mary and the infant Jesus, frequently with the glass lid covered in a white tablecloth. The box was adorned with flowers and ribbons (and sometimes apples). Carrying them from door to door was the norm. If you didn’t receive a box before Christmas Eve, it is exceedingly unfortunate!
