Preparing For Advent...
Unfortunately, there is no corresponding season in which to prepare for Advent.
With the secular emphasis on Christmas (sorry, the "Festive" season), the round of present-shopping, parties and such-like, Advent can get lost. And yet it is a season in its own right. We are preparing for the coming of Christ - a remembrance of his first visit and an anticipation of the second!
There's a week to go before it starts. So take the time to decide what you are going to do to celebrate Advent.
