  When I was growing up, I had an Advent calendar, which I would open one window at a time in anticipation of Christmas Eve, but that’s about all I remember of Advent. We may have sung “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” at the beginning of December, but then we sang Christmas carols. Maybe we didn’t need the season of …
