Christmas E-Cards for the First Week of Advent

By Ann Zlotnik

We are bringing back our virtual Advent wreath for a second year. Join with the Marian Library at the University of Dayton to celebrate the joyful anticipation of Christmas! Each week during Advent, we will light a new candle and share a special gift from the Marian Library. Visit to interact with our wreath and see what surprises we have in store for the UD community and all of our friends near and far.

Your Gift for the first week of Advent

We have selected images from across our collections to create a variety of e-cards for the Christmas season. Visit the virtual Advent wreath, choose your favorite (or favorites), save them to your computer or device, then send them in an email or text message to your family and friends. This is the Marian Library’s gift to you for the first week of Advent. We hope it shares with you—and your loved ones—the true message of this wonderful season.

Ann Zlotnik is a graphic designer and the communications and creative coordinator for the University Libraries and the Marian Library.
