SOMERS POINT -- With Thanksgiving approaching, it's just about time to get out the holiday decorations.
In Somers Point this weekend, the public was invited to make their own Advent wreaths.
Sister Sheila Murray was available to explain the advent season and the meaning of the wreath.
"An advent wreath has been a long time Christian tradition where we prepare ourselves for Christmas during the advent season, which are the four weeks before the special holiday," says Murray.
The first Sunday of Advent will be December 2.
