CELEBRATIONS: POEMS OF LIFE AND LOVE
Carole Ellison began writing poems to her children in the 1970s, when they were reaching the age of reason and as she found herself in the position of becoming a single parent. She felt she needed something special to share with them — something that would become a tradition, something they could always count on... And so her Advent Poems began — one day, decades ago — with a poem each day during the Advent season in December. The poems were accompanied by a little trinket or sweet for them to enjoy. Forty years later... her children still look forward to the annual poems that started a family tradition that new generations have embraced.
