Does it end ON the 4th Sunday of Advent? Or does it last until Christmas eve? For example, this year, we have 6 days after the 4th Sunday of Advent on until Christmas (Christmas being on a Saturday). Does this mean we can decorate during this period, or does it still count as the time of advent?

If you could provide sources with your answers that'd be helpful! Thanks and God bless

Christmas eve at Midnight is the end of Advent. At least that is what I have been told so no references sorry.

Fish Eaters is a wonderfully informative website, and under the Seasonal Customs/Liturgical Year subsections in the Being Catholic section of the website, there is a slew of information on every day in the year!

That's true, but why didn't you answer the question as well as pointing the OP to your source?

Someone already answered it correctly.

I don't think that answer was correct.  The Christmas season begins with first Vespers of the Nativity.  Hence Advent ends after None of the Vigil of the Nativity (Dec 24) -- so in the afternoon, not at midnight.

Bingo! That would be the First Vespers of the Nativity.
