O Antiphon Countdown

Our Advent hope stands on tiptoe, searching the horizon for that glorious day!

The O'Antiphons are helping us count down 
to the glorious day of Christmas.

We printed the O Antiphon symbols out from Jessica's post over at Catholic Cuisine.
~Her brilliant ideas was to tape these to chocolate coins~
I haven't had a chance to get out of the house to pick up chocolate coins so I decided to cut these out and place them on votive candle holders that I had on hand.
I didn't even color them!
Nevertheless, these have been wonderful little tools for helping our family learn about the 
O Antiphon symbols.
We are lighting an O Antiphon candle each day
and placing the candle around our main
family Nativity Scene.
O Night Divine has a beautiful prayer packet to print out.
We were using our Magnificat Advent Companion until we discovered this one.
There are some lovely food ideas in this packet but we are keeping things simple with just the prayers this year.

At the end of the 7 days, we will be lighting the 
O Emmanuel Candle,
nearest to the manger...
Waiting in Joyful Hope for 
O Night Divine!


  1. Love how you used those printables on votives. Great thinking!

  2. very creative Tiffany. I love your Naticity too!

  3. I love it! This is our first year trying this devotion- I had not even heard of such a thing until just last year. It is wonderful to peruse the blog world and see this beautiful tradition in action. Thank you so much for sharing.

  4. Those turned out great! Awesome idea! Happy O Antiphons!

  5. Tiffany, you are always full of wonderful ideas. I like keeping it simple, too.

    A blessed Christmas to you and your family!
