Advent Wreath

Advent is a season observed in many Christian traditions, typically beginning on the Sunday closest to November 30th and lasting until Christmas Eve. It marks the period of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas Day.  Advent usually involves the lighting of candles on an Advent wreath, with each candle representing different themes such as hope, peace, joy and love. It serves as a time for reflection, prayer, and anticipation, emphasizing both the historic significance of Christ’s birth and the anticipation of his second coming.
