I am sharing our favorite family Advent devotional books and Advent calendars for 2022. Plus my favorite advent books for women. Do you choose a new advent book every year, or re-read a treasured one? And I’ve got some great ideas for Christmas Advent Calendars for 2022.

A beautiful retelling of the Christmas store, from the people inside the story! A quick and easy read. The Promise and the Light by Katy Morgan. I loved it, you can read a chapter a day, or read it like a novel. It’s written for kids from 8-12, but honestly, I guess it brings the kid out in me.

I have also ordered The Dawn of Redeeming Grace by Sinclair B. Ferguson and very much look forward to reading that each day.

So whip up a quick, warm cup of tea or Christmas Morning Chai or this eggnog latte and join me in preparing room in our hearts this cherished and sacred season.

When Is Advent 2022

The dates of advent each year, are the last Sunday in November through Christmas day. Advent season 2022 is November 27, 2022 and goes through December 25, 2022.

What Is Advent?

Many understand that Advent is celebrated starting the fourth Sunday before Christmas, but what IS Advent?

Some people may know that the Advent season focuses on expectation and think that it serves as an anticipation of Christ’s birth in the season leading up to Christmas. This is part of the story, but there’s more to Advent.

The word “Advent” is derived from the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming,” which is a translation of the Greek word parousia. Scholars believe that during the 4th and 5th centuries in Spain and Gaul, Advent was a season of preparation for the baptism of new Christians at the January feast of Epiphany, the celebration of God’s incarnation represented by the visit of the Magi to the baby Jesus (Matthew 2:1), his baptism in the Jordan River by John the Baptist (John 1:29), and his first miracle at Cana (John 2:1). During this season of preparation, Christians would spend 40 days in penance, prayer, and fasting to prepare for this celebration; originally, there was little connection between Advent and Christmas.
