Fountains of Rome
Piazza San Pietro
INTRODUCTION: My blog has been dormant for several months. It seems that facebook and my classroom blog (www.Ambrit5L.blogspot.com) have been taking it's place. But with a new Advent Season I decided to dust off the AMOROMA blog and share a 5th Roman Advent Calendar. I remember Advent Calendars from my childhood, and over the years I shared them with my own kids, Emily and Peter. We would look forward to opening a window and revealing a picture, and sometimes a verse, relating to Christmas. (This year I have one on my iPad and a friend gifted me one in electronic form that I will begin opening on December 1st.)
Previous years I have posted Roman Windows, Roman Doors, Roman Gates and Angels in Rome. This year I will continue my Advent Calendar tradition with Fountains of Rome. Each day you will be able to log in and see a different fountain that I have encountered here in Rome.
Question: When do I start the Advent Calendar? Today, November 27, is the beginning of Advent in Christian Churches. There are just so many fountains in Rome, so I will begin today and let you "splash" in them until Christmas.
