- In stock, ready to ship
Start a new holiday tradition in your family by creating an Advent wreath with our Advent Ring Candle Holder.
The Advent wreath is originally a Lutheran tradition, but is now practiced by many faiths and families. It is used during the four weeks leading up to Christmas. Whether your family celebrates Christmas, Hanukkah, or the Solstice, Advent candles can be used to symbolize this season of preparation and anticipation of the coming light.
In the Christian tradition, the Advent ring typically holds four candles (three purple and one pink), and often a fifth white candle placed in the center on Christmas Eve. The base is often decorated with evergreen branches, pinecones, berries and ribbon, like a wreath.
Beginning on the first Sunday of Advent (the fourth Sunday before Christmas), the first candle is lit, which can be accompanied by reciting a verse. An additional candle is lit during each subsequent Sunday until the last Sunday before Christmas when all four candles are lit.
The purple candles symbolize repentance and royalty. The pink candle, which is lit on the third Sunday of Advent, symbolizes the joy that Christmas and the birth of the baby is almost here!
You can even make your own beeswax candles for your Advent Ring with our Advent Beeswax Candle Rolling Kit!
Lit candles should always be used under adult supervision. Candles not included.
