10" Advent Tapers Candles in Hang Box
The Advent wreath is the traditional Christmas centerpiece. It represents the passing of the four weeks of Advent in the Western Church's liturgical calendar. The Advent Tapers Candles are a spectacular way to mark the weeks in December, beginning on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day when Christians anticipate Christ's arrival. The lighting of Advent lights in churches and households alike honors the genuine essence of Christmas.
A purple (or blue) candle is lit on the First Sunday of Advent to commemorate Hope, the inspirational and encouraging hope that Christ among us represents. Another purple (or blue) candle is lit on the second Sunday of Advent to commemorate Peace, both the Prince of Peace and the promise of peace on Earth. On the Third Sunday of Advent, a pink candle is lit to commemorate Joy, either the joy that the shepherds felt when they learned of Christ's birth or the joy that God brings into our lives. As Christ's return approaches, the final purple (or blue) candle is lit on the fourth Sunday of Advent to commemorate Love, both God's boundless love for us, and our love for one another.
The dazzling light from the candles expresses the rising expectation of the birth of Jesus Christ, who is regarded as the Light of the World in the Christian faith.
