"O" Antiphons..."O" what are they?

OK,  so I have heard of the term "O" Antiphons", especially as I listened to videos with my cupcakes during our Advent Adventures with Holy Heroes, but really didn't know what they were or paid attention to this Advent tradition...until this year.
For some reason, it is this year I want to try to learn about the traditions that correspond with the last 7 days of Advent (Dec. 17-23) with my family.  I want to begin this new tradition of reciting the "O" Antiphons with my family as we anticipate the celebration of Christ's birth.

So I'm linking up to Lacy's post HERE at Catholic Icing where I found a ton of great resources to begin learning more about the "O" Antiphons, a tradition I hope to continue for years to come.
I printed off a Great "O" Antiphon Prayer Companion that I found HERE. I also want to have my kiddos color these "O" Antiphon coloring pages HERE.

O Come, O come, Emmanuel...
 May your last 7 days of Advent be blessed!
