First Night of Advent



We have our First Candle burning- we are doing votives instead of pillars and all green (didn't have purple and pink)- I will add a White one by Christmas day!

We added Sand Dollars and Sea glass to celebrate the festival of minerals. Also the first light is for Hope!

A nice tradition to start!

There are 3 pink candles and a purple one. I think the colors match the colors of something the priest wears on those sundays? Advent is supposed to be a lot like Lent- there is supposed to be fasting and reflecting on spirit stuff.

some don't put up any decorations or start celebrating until Christmas Eve.

We are more on the light side when it comes to this tradition.
