  1. Years ago my mother bought a small table-top tree and made an Advent Tree out of it. She cut pictures from bible stories out of colored paper starting with the story of the Garden of Eden , making a cutout of an apple with a bite missing, the Ten Commandments, Noah’s ark, a star, and so on up to the birth of Jesus. Each week she would let one of her nine children pick on of the cutouts to hang on the tree. I shared the tradition with my children when they were small and they loved it too. It gave us a time to talk about the bible and the stories behind each symbol we hung on the tree.
