Ten-year-old Holly is eager to enter a contest about the meaning of Advent. After attempts of trying to get her family to help, who are too busy with details of Christmas, Holly sits alone at her computer, feeling discouraged. Suddenly, St. Nicholas appears! With the saint’s help, Holly learns about the meaning and background of customs families practice during Advent, such as the Advent calendar, the Advent wreath, the Christmas tree, Las Posadas, and more. After St. Nick leaves, Holly can’t wait to write about Advent!
