I had never heard of the chalking. How lovely. I have now included it in my Advent/Christmas folder. Thank you.

Here's a good summary of the custom:

1. Get the priest to bless you some chalk. Any color will do, I like red because it's festive.

2. Get some holy water from the stoup, Epiphany water if your parish specially blesses it.

3. Follow the directions here.

4. Peace be to this house!
