Attack of the Advent Shark

November 30th marked the first Sunday of Advent, aka the 3-week preparation before Christmas, when people scramble around like headless chickens trying to do the impossible. But if you’re a 4th grade catechist like me, you’re also making crafts in CCD class, which is exactly what we did yesterday. So what did we make? Well, we saran-wrapped big long tubes of peppermints for counting down the days, topping them off with a hand-decorated paper star. Of course, what would an Advent star be like if it didn’t have a sweet little sharky tadpole? Boring, right? That’s what Catholic Son thinks, too:

    @ginabeana – most definitely. Why we didn’t have sharky tadpoles in our holiday decorating before, I’ll never know.

    Who knows? You could have the next Andy Warhol or Picasso on your hands. I love the artistic value of his star! It could go on my tree! More color!
