we enjoyed not just a brightly lit window, but also a fire and grilling sausages for dinner, eating leek soup and having some of the neighbors over for that. it was nice, as we don't see each other as much now in the dark of winter, summer lends itself so much more to socialize. so this tradition of visiting each other during advent make great opportunities to not just huddle in our own place.
other people serve chirstmas cookies and other sweet treats, punch and spiced wine, it gives each family the opportunity to be hosts and guests and it brightens up the nights in the darkest time of year.
