Wooden Birthday / Advent Spiral
This Wooden Spiral Candle Holder from Grimms Spiel & Holz of Germany allows families to bring a Waldorf tradition home, and is sure to create cherised memories of family traditions for your child for years to come.
Eight wooden pieces form a spiral. Each segment has three holes to hold our brass candle holders and Grimms wooden birthday decorations.
To use during Advent, one can add and light a new candle each night during from December 1 to 24, lighting the final candle on Christmas Eve, starting from the outside of the spiral, working inward toward the center.
Alternatively, one candle can move space at a time through the spiral during the 24 nights of Advent.
Another lovely tradition is to incorporate Ostheimer's Mary and Donkey and Joseph figures, and have them move through the spiral nightly as each candle is lit.
During the rest of the year, this wooden spiral does double-duty as a birthday ring, and the extra holes can be filled with our wooden birthday decorations from Grimms.
