virtual advent tour

Welcome to the 17th day of the Virtual Advent Tour. Today is Gaudete Sunday.

“Gaudete” is the Latin word for “rejoice,” the first word of the verses from Philippians 4:4-5 spoken at the beginning of the Catholic service on the third Sunday of Advent. (My Catholic friends, if I’ve misrepresented that, please correct me.) The 16th-century carol “Gaudete” is sung here by Steeleye Span who charted in the U.K. with it back in 1972.

So, in honor of the day, let us rejoice that Christmas has nearly arrived and celebrate by heading over to visit Nina at The Cozy Pages, who has a post for us today in which she answers some questions about her holidays.

See you back here tomorrow for the start of the final week of the Virtual Advent Tour!
