Advent Wreath

The Advent Wreath or Advent Crown is a Christian tradition that symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent.  It is an evergreen wreath with four candles.  Beginning with the first Sunday of Advent the lighting of a candle can be accompanied by a bible reading, devotional time or a prayer.  An additional candle is lit on each subsequent Sunday until. by the last Sunday of Advent, all four candles are lit. 

Rev Mary came in this week to teach our Foxes children all about the Advent Wreath and the first candle was lit.
