For Christians this is a period of preparation. Many Christians call these four weeks Advent and they prepare themselves for the celebration of Jesus birth. The word Advent comes from the Latin adveneo, meaning to come to and refers to Jesus coming into the world at Christmas.brbrThe four-week Advent observed today was not always in place. In the fifth century, Advent began on 11 November and lasted the 44 days until Christmas. But from sixth century the Catholic Church reduced Advent to four weeks in length. However, in Eastern Orthodox Christianity, Advent is longer. It spans the 40 days between 28 November and 6 January. Christmas Day is 6 January in these churches.brbriMindsJNR offers 6 main categories for ages 7-14years including General Knowledge, Geography Nature, Famous People, Science Maths, The Arts and History.
