The US episcopal conference is offering a variety of Advent resources, including a downloadable 2013 Advent calendar with a daily resolution or teaching.

Those looking for Christmas gifts can check out the fair trade products that Catholic Relief Services helps to make possible.

Resources include explanations of Catholic Advent traditions, including the Advent wreath. There is also a podcast for a Festival of Lessons and Carols, as well as various blessings, including a blessing of the Christmas tree.
