The Advent Wreath and Candles 2016


The Advent wreath is a popular custom that originated in Germany in the 16th century. It consists of an evergreen wreath and four candles (traditionally, three purple candles and one rose one). The candles are lit every night during Advent—one candle the first week, then an additional candle for each successive week.
The four candles represent the four weeks of Advent. The purple candles represents/symbolizes prayer and preparing. The fourth candle is lit on the third Sunday, representing Gaudete Sunday, and priests will wear a pink/rose-colored robe; this candle symbolizes joy.
