First Advent

Many churches celebrate Advent with the lighting of a candle on each of the four Sundays leading up to Christmas Day.  The four candles represent hope, peace, joy and love and help us to prepare out hearts to celebrate the coming of our Saviour.  A fifth candle may be lit on Christmas Day and is known as the Christ candle.  Throughout this busy season, Advent wreaths or centrepieces (such as the one pictured here) are a reminder of the real reason we celebrate.
