Do you find that as Christmas gets closer, it gets harder to concentrate on the reason for the season?
Does the bustle of gift shopping, picking out a tree, and decorating your home distract you from God’s greatest Gift to mankind—Jesus?
You may have adopted the Jesse Tree tradition as a way to remind both yourself and your little ones of the true meaning of the Christmas feast. This beloved Advent tradition involves hanging ornaments day-by-day on a little “Jesse” tree, with each decoration symbolizing a biblical event in salvation history.
If your family likes decorating a Jesse Tree, you’ll love the Salvation History Advent Blocks—a fun and engaging take on the Jesse Tree tradition!
These Advent Blocks are a hardy, beechwood set of 27 blocks, complete with their own strong wood box for storing and organizing. 25 blocks are numbered from the first of December all the way up to Christmas day, each sided with an illustration of a Bible story. The remaining two feature a Star of Bethlehem and a globe picture. A ribboned book (The King is Coming!) offers daily Bible stories and colorful pictures.
Every day, move the Star block to the numbered block of the day and read the corresponding story in the book. The block’s illustration sets the theme for the day, and helps your little ones (and you!) anticipate the coming of the King. Just as the Magi did on their long journey, you and your family can follow the Star of Bethlehem to greet the long-expected King.
Make the Advent Blocks a tradition your family will love! The perfect gift for your children, grandchildren, godchildren, or the whole family. And did we mention this set is on sale? Get yours today at The Catholic Company!
