Holly and Ivy Pewter 7" Advent Wreath
Advent season begins the fourth Sunday before Christmas and runs
through Christmas Eve. Each day in Advent, often at the main meal, the
candles are lit: one candle the first week, two the second, three the
third (pink) and all four during the last week, through Christmas Eve.
Each lighting is accompanied by a blessing, a scriptural reading, and
the singing of a verse from "O come, O come, Emmanuel". A different
member of the family, usually starting with the father, leads the
ceremony and lights the candles each evening.
Advent wreath comes with set of 4 candles.
