Stories and Symbolism:
Advent is a season of waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus. The season of Advent lasts for four Sundays leading up to Christmas. The light of the Advent candles is an important symbol of the season. The light reminds us that Jesus is the light of the world that comes into the darkness of our lives to bring newness, life, and hope.
