Advent is the beginning of the Christian calendar and has been observed sine the 9th century. The season begins on Advent Sunday, the fourth Sunday preceding Christmas. In celebration of the coming of Christ, an Advent wreath consisting of 3 purple and 1 pink candle is arranged in a green wreath usually made of evergreens and/or boxwood.
The first purple candle stands for hope, the second symbolizes love, the pink candle embodies joy and the third purple candle represents the symbol of peace. They represent the four weeks of preparation. As another candle is lit each week, we are reminded of the growing light of Christ's presence.
