More sites of the advent season

 

 

“It is now, at Advent, that I am given the chance to suspend all expectation…and instead to revel in the mystery.” ― Jerusalem Jackson Greer.

At West Edmonton Mall the red carpet is laid down to welcome the Christmas Season. Christmas music, bright lights, activities for children and the holiday spirit dominate the setting. It is a world of polar bears, childhood wonder and the magic of the season.

This is the season of the liturgical year filled with promise, hope, love and innocence. A time to suspend our adult notions of hatred, fear and cynicism and create a new person not based solely on a New Year resolution but anchored into our deeper beliefs of goodness, optimism and brotherhood.

Susan and myself decided to devote a number of articles to the magic, sights and hopes of the season. It is a time of year that does pass by quickly but should be recognized as a time of growth and change for us all.

In this installment I present a photographic view of the colorful lights, sites, themes and joy this season offers.  — gc
