How to spend time during advent
In the days of advent it is important not only bodily abstinence, but spiritual: not to be given the bustling entertainment and swearing. Also, do not feel a sense of superiority because of the abstinence from forbidden food, it can only hurt.
In the bodily post, it is important to abstain from delicious food. And for the person to refrain from sinful acts, which contribute to development of vices. But to indulge in tasty food is not worth it if this will not follow the spiritual abstinence. Important days of advent pray sincerely and repent for all their sins to be cleansed.
Undesirable while fasting is getting married. Our ancestors are very serious about this ban, but often did not comply. Church during lent can make concessions and to marry only with a couple of good reasons.
