Happy Advent Season, My Lovelies! This year on my Advent Calendar I want to share Christmas traditions from around the world along with a daily scripture reading.
Today's featured country is Ethiopia, where Christmas is celebrated on January 7th. Church services are a very important part of their Christmas celebrations. People receive candles as they enter the church. After lighting the candles everyone walks around the church three times, then stands throughout the mass, which may last up to three hours.
