Hanging of the Green

Another Advent tradition that I love, and have not yet had the priviledge to participate in first-hand is the church “Hanging of the Green.”

I first heard of this while reading my beloved Mitford books, and got a glimpse for this Southern Baptist Belle into the world of our brother Episcopalians.

If you missed the chance to participate in a Hanging of the Green service yesterday, on the first day of Advent, why not participate in one of your own.

Make an official ceremony out of hanging greenery on your mantle or banister, or the wreath on your front door.

Here are some guides to guide you, but feel free to add your own words, songs, and so forth.

Just another way to “keep Christmas” in our hearts.
