Why Advent and Christmastime Stimulate a Sense of Wonder
Like many people I enjoy the Christmas season, often called Christmastime, or Advent. I especially gravitate toward the more "enchanted" components that inspire a sense of wonder. God designed people with the capacity to perceive and experience wonder, with a yearning for it even. This is why a sense of wonder is essential to certain kinds of movies, and why they are popular. There are wonderous and wonderful aspects of Christmastime, and people can feel it without knowing why. For me and many others there is a sense of wonder that accompanies the whole season.
