The carol "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" belongs to the Advent Season since it celebrates the expectation of Christ's coming rather than His actual birth. Celtic Advent is always Nov. 15-Dec. 24 Observance begins at Sunset on Nov. 14 and ends on December 24th at sundown, the beginning of Christmas Eve. Enjoy this video:
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
