First Sunday in Advent
"Behold, your King is coming to you," Zechariah was given to say.
On Thursday after church, the kids and I watched the end of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. As always, the parade ended with a man dressed in red with a white beard riding a float. And, as always, the announcer gives the obligatory proclamation that the end of the parade signals the beginning of the holiday season. With Thanksgiving, we enter the "Christmas Season," or so we are told.
