Advent: The "Little Lent"

While reading through some of my favorite blogs this morning, I came across this post from Elizabeth Foss:  What are you giving up for Advent?

Advent is time of preparation....just like Lent.  When thinking about this, I am reminded of the song lyrics..."Prepare ye the way of the Lord".  The word Advent comes from the Latin advenio which means "to come to" which refers to the coming of Christ.  In Advent as in Lent, we should be preparing our souls to receive Jesus Christ.

So, I'm curious, what are you doing to prepare?  I mean, I know what most of us do physically to prepare for Advent.  But, what are you doing Spiritually?

More to come on this subject.
