1st Sunday of Advent

Today is the first day of the Advent season, the "countdown" for Christmas. It is a tradition to buy (or create personally) an Advent wreath and to light the candles on every Sunday - on the first Sunday one candle, on the second two candles and so on, until on the last Sunday before Christmas all four candles are lit.


  1. My parents always had an advent set of candles- they used a log, decorated with garland and other such things, as the base for the lit candles.

  2. My neighbor has an advent wreath hanging from a tree in her front yard. Pretty but it's awfully cold out there!!
