Advent Wreath (1)

This past Sunday was the 1. Advent, which is the fourth Sunday before Christmas. Growing up, we always had an advent wreath, but they seem to be very hard to find here in the US.  Mine is not a traditional wreath (but I can change the figurines and leave it up all year), and I “cheat” by lighting all four candles at once. You’re supposed to light one candle on the 1. Advent, two candle on the 2. Advent, and so on. To read more about advent wreaths, and to see pictures of traditional ones, click here.

  4. Okay…I didn’t know what Advent was until I read this. I should be more curious about names of things. 🙂 Thank you!

  7. Cheryl, you’re absolutely right! I do have four snowmen… flowers…. sailboats/lighthouse… hearts…. and Easter figurines for it, too. And a few more Christmas-y ones.
