Jesse Tree

Right on, Target!

I'm not a big fan of Advent Wreaths or Jesse Trees, although if I had a Jesse Tree such as the illumination shown, I would be pleased. I think these things are great for families, especially kids, but for me, not so much. Although, I do appreciate old-world looking Advent calendars.

Speaking of Advent calendars - has anyone paid much attention to Target's Christmas ad on television? I vote it the best of the 2007 season. I love the music - sounds very Paul McCartney - and the format is nothing more than an Advent calendar. Now that is a good 'Catholic' Christmas ad if I ever saw one!

Right on, Target Corporation!


  1. I'll have to keep an eye out for the Target commercial.

    I'm a fan of Christmas wreaths, but I have to agree with you when it come to Advent Wreaths.


  2. I like the Christmas wreath as well - and the original German Advent wreath is nice - it has never been my family's tradition. In fact - it is not really a liturgical element either.
