Advent wreath

Perhaps the most popular Advent institution, the Advent wreath is a tradition shared by Catholics and Protestants. Made of evergreens to symbolize eternal life in Christ, the wreath has four candles that count down the four Sundays until Christmas. An additional candle is lit each week--traditionally three purple candles and one pink candle, lit on the third Sunday of Advent. A fifth white candle may be used in the center to represent Jesus.
